When and How Often Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?

When and How Often Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?

Feb 16, 2018

February is National Children’s Dental Health month.

To celebrate, we’ll be posting some children’s dental health tips for parents.

One of the most important things parents can do for their children’s teeth is to schedule regular dental exams.

Children should see the dentist for the first time after their first tooth appears and ideally by their first birthday.

Follow up exams should be scheduled every six months. Seeing Dr. Korous twice a year in our Little Elm dental office allows her to monitor your child’s tooth development and check for any problems.

At Millennium Smiles, we understand going to the dentist could be intimidating for both the parent and child.

Dr. Korous and our staff have ample experience in treating both nervous adults and children. We’ll make sure you and your child are comfortable.

Jennifer: Dr. Korous is the Best Dentist for My Family

We also understand moms and dads have hectic schedules and want to make dental visits as simple as possible for parents like Jennifer.

As a busy mom, Jennifer depends on Millennium Smiles for her family’s dental needs.

“I was able to get all of my children in-and-out within two hours, and for four children that’s a huge deal,” she said.

Dr. Korous and her staff treated Jennifer and her children like they were family.

“My four-year-old that was completely crying and worried about coming to the dentist left with a lollipop and smile and telling everyone she was going to be the next dentist,” she said.

Our office is conveniently located for families in Frisco and Little Elm. To schedule your child’s first appointment with Dr. Korous, contact our office at 972-987-4899 or request an appointment online.
