Both the American Association of Pediatric Dentists and the American Dental Association recommend that a child is seen by a dentist at least once before the age of one. This visit is crucial because it establishes a comfortable dental home for both the child and the parents, and allows for early preventative care to ensure your child has the healthiest mouth possible! Our program is working to connect families with local dentists to ensure that there is access to this important dental milestone.
Our goal is to support the recommendations of an age 1 dental visit messaging with both pediatric, family medicine and have the support from the dental home. To find our more about our Age 1 Campaign please view our webinar, Importance of Age One Dental Visits, How Pediatricians and Dental Providers Can Work Together.
