February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Did you know that the American Dental Association recommends that kids visit the dentist for the first time by the age of one or when their first tooth comes in? These early appointments are as much about acclimating children to the dentist’s chair as they are about cleaning the teeth.

Watch this video from the ADA for tips that will make your baby or toddler’s first visit go smoothly for everyone.
At Silver Leaf Dentistry, we offer “happy visits” designed to give young kids positive associations with the dentist. Call our Longmont, CO office at 720-504-2539 to book an appointment. Or contact us through our online form.
