Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry focuses on children's oral health. Pediatric dentists treat children starting at infancy and continue care for their dental health through their teenage years. Kids get their first set of (baby) teeth around the age of 6 months old. Children keep this first set until the age of 6 or 7 when they begin to lose their baby teeth and their second set of teeth (permanent) replace the first set. Children should have their first dental appointment around 6 months old which is around the time that most babies have their first tooth or before their first birhtday.
