Paediatric Dentistry

baby brushing teeth


First visits to the dentist are recommended for children around the age of 3. Children who see a dentist from an early age are less likely to fear dental visits or develop cavities. Preventative screenings may be all that is required at such an early age; however, at this time, the Scarboro Smiles team is able to help counsel parents on feeding methods and thumb and finger habits that will help build healthy hygiene habits.

To get your child ready for their first visit, we suggest allowing your child to attend a hygiene visit with a parent or sibling to become familiar with the office and staff. It may also be helpful to encourage regular tooth care at home.
