James Lin DMD

When should I first bring my child to the dentist?

You should bring your child to the dentist on or around their first birthday. However, if you are concerned, you can bring them earlier.

Early visits with our children’s dentist in Los Gatos, CA, involve:

  • Conversations about bottle feeding and tooth decay
  • Diet and nutrition for toddlers
  • Proper mouth-cleaning techniques
  • Issues with teething and tooth development
  • Finger and pacifier suckling

The dentist also examines your child’s teeth and jaw structure to ensure everything is developing correctly and on schedule.

We also take time to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Our gentle team wants your child to enjoy visiting the dentist, so we work to make each appointment personable and fun. We may count teeth or offer a thrilling ride in the dental chair!

At-Home Oral Care

The dentist lets you know how to best care for your child’s teeth and gums at home. This includes when to brush their teeth and how. We also help children transition into independent brushing when age appropriate.

And we are always a phone call away if you have questions or concerns.
