Family dentistry is a field of dental care devoted to providing ongoing care and preventive education for children and adults. Morris County Dental Associates of Succasunna is a full-service family dentistry practice committed to providing the best quality care for kids, their parents, and grandparents.
When Should My Child Have their First Trip to the Dentist?
Early, regular dental care is essential to ensuring that children have the best chance of having healthy teeth throughout childhood and adulthood. As a result, you should bring your child to the dentist twice per year starting around the age of 3. Waiting until your child’s permanent teeth are in place could lead to problems later in life, so don’t postpone that first trip to the dentist.
