Free Dental Exams for Babies
The American Dental Association recommends bringing your child for their first dental visit before their first birthday, or as soon as their teeth start coming in. Yet many people put it off, figuring that baby teeth aren’t as “important” as permanent teeth. You shouldn’t neglect baby teeth, however, as they play a role in your child’s development.
Northwest Dental Group encourages you to bring your child to see our Rochester, MN dentists by offering free dental exams for youngsters under the age of 3. With our efficient team performing your dental exams, both mom and baby can get their checkups done in an hour!
Convenient Hours for You and Your Baby
Here’s a pro tip for ensuring your child’s first dental visit goes well: Bring them at a time of day when they are rested and in a good mood. Of course, with babies, that may fall outside of normal “business” hours! That’s no problem at Northwest Dental Group, as we have morning, evening, and weekend appointments so you don’t have to miss work or school.
Making Dental Care Fun
We believe strongly in preventative dentistry at Northwest Dental Group. So to keep your kids interested in dental care, we do our best to make it fun! We use stuffed animals to show your children how to brush their teeth. And we have a cavity-free club.
