It is important children are introduced to regular dental practice visits from an early age
‘A little trip to the dentist’ is an oral health campaign designed to get more babies to the dentist even before their first teeth come through. Take your child to the dentist as early as possible to get them use to the sights, sounds and smells of a dental practice environment.
Making regular visits to the dentist is important when developing positive oral health routines to better prevent tooth decay later in life. The advice a dentist can offer on toothbrushing, healthy weaning and teething will contribute to a healthy start in life for your little one.
Here are a couple of handy videos for parents and carers to watch:
