Parenting can be a challenging yet highly rewarding experience. Getting your son or daughter off to a good start and monitoring their health and development can have a major impact on their quality of life as an adult.

Amongst these concerns is your child’s oral health and development. To answer these important topics the American Dental Association recommends that your child receive a dental checkup at some point before they celebrate their first birthday.

Here at Ortman Family Dentistry our dentist Dr. Greg Ortman and his staff are passionate about providing you and your family with high quality dental care.

Catching any oral development or dental health conditions early is important for successful treatment and restorative services. It can be helpful to schedule your child’s first dental checkup after a nap or meal.

The appointment is also a good opportunity for you to mention and concerns or questions about your child’s oral health and development. The teething process can sometimes be stressful.
