Young children who learn the importance of oral hygiene early on are more likely to grow up with strong, healthy smiles and fewer dental-related issues such as cavities or tooth decay.

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that the first dental visit should occur by age one to get parents on the right track to protect their children’s teeth. Here at Elmhurst Dental, treatment does not occur until a child is at least two or three. Rest assured your child of any age will be in good hands with our nurturing and highly skilled team.
