At Westport Dental Associates, we emphasize starting dental care at an early age. The American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommend that every child should visit a dentist by age ONE – or as soon as the first tooth appears. This “well baby visit” teaches parents and caregivers how to care for their children’s teeth and help them remain cavity-free.
The sooner children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their entire lives. Early checkups help prevent tooth decay, which can sometimes lead to pain and other concerns such as trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Children with healthy teeth chew food easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.
Starting your child with our Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Rachel Rhee, and continuing dental care into adulthood with our experienced specialists and professionals, we offer true lifetime dental care from the day the first tooth erupts. We are confident our unique environment will make you and your children feel you have found a dental home for life.
