Question : "When do I take my child to the dentist for the first time?"

Parents often have difficulty deciding when to take their child for a first visit. The experts recommend that the first visit happen soon after the first teeth erupted, preferably at age one to two. We like to teach you how to take care of them to prevent problems.

At our Stellenbosch Dental Practice, the Dentist and staff will make your child feel like they belong before performing a quick examination. They will also use language that is easy to understand for you both, making it more comfortable for you and your child.

Your child’s new dentist will talk to you about good oral hygiene and allow you to ask any questions that you may have. You may even want to bring a list of questions with you, just in case. The dentist will also check your child’s gums, jaw, and bite for potential problems related to teeth or speech patterns.

We are looking forward to seeing your kids at Chris Pistoruis Dental
