Q: At What Age Should My Child Start Seeing a Dentist?
A: We recommend the first dental visit be six months after their first tooth erupts or their first birthday, whichever comes first. Our goal is to have happy and healthy patients who love coming to see us no matter what age they are! Ask about our brochure “A Guide to Your Child’s Oral Health” for more information on your child’s first dental visit.
Q: Is Baby Orajel Safe?
A: No. The baby will ingest it and this can lead to a condition called methemoglobinemia, which if neglected can lead to serious conditions including permanent brain damage.
