When should children start to see a dentist?

What happens during a dental appointment?

During each visit, the First Smile Dental team examines your mouth. They may take X-rays or other measurements. You also receive an in-depth cleaning. The team carefully clears away tartar, plaque, or other debris to also assess your gum health.

If the team spots a problem, they discuss possible treatments. Your First Smile Dental provider helps you choose the procedure that's right for you.
