What Is A Dental Home?

Does your child visit the same pediatrician for periodic check-ups, vaccines, and illness? Similar to a medical home with an established doctor, a dental home is a practice where your child receives dental services from the same dentist.

Your child’s dental home should be their go-to practice for preventative, comprehensive, and emergency oral health care (with referrals to specialists when appropriate). When searching for your baby’s first dental home, four key indicators to look for include:

  • Treatment from an experienced, Board Certified Pediatric Dentist
  • Extensive children’s dentistry services
  • An emphasis on preventative dentistry
  • Access to continuous care

When Should I Schedule My Child's First Pediatric Dentistry Visit?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), parents should take their baby to the dentist when the first tooth appears, but no later than age one. Infant dental exams aim to prevent dental problems such as tooth decay. Studies support that scheduling a child’s first visit by their first birthday is more likely to continue receiving preventative care and are less likely to need restorative and emergency dental services—which can save time, discomfort, and money in the long run.
