All of us at Four Seasons Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Plymouth MN truly believe that the dental health of children and the positive experiences they have with their dentist set the stage for life in the importance of dental hygiene. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of a child’s first tooth, or in some cases by a child’s first birthday. We believe that it is very important to establish a strong comfort level between our youngest patients and members of our staff while educating them on good dental habits for life. We have found that starting oral examinations at an early age aids in minimizing the potential impact of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify bad habits, and ensure that proper treatment is provided as soon as possible.
We are firm believers that parents need to be educated in the importance of life long dental best practices as well, so we will ensure that you will understand:
