Your Child's First Dental Visit

Serving Greater Philadelphia, including Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, & Newtown Square.

Arguably the most important goal of family dentistry is acclimating your child to the rhythms of a dentist's office. The good news about sound oral health is that it's essentially a matter of habits – once you get into the habit of brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing on a daily basis and visiting the dentist twice a year, you'll be on the path to healthy teeth and gums.

At The Office of Doctor Bellisario, we work with you to place your child on that path. We help Havertown-area families like yours teach their children sound dental habits.

This starts with your child's first dental visit. The right time for your child's first visit can vary, but we usually recommend bringing your child in when he or she is between two and a half and three years old. This is the point at whch your child's teeth start developing and benefit from close monitoring.

This first visit is also a great opportunity to get your child used to the dentist's office – the sights, sounds and smells of the office can be a little confusing, but they don't have to be frightening. We are committed to ensuring your child has a healthy, pleasant and fun visit.
