At Bozeman Gentle Dentistry, we are happy to provide dental care to everyone in your family, from the youngest member to the oldest. Do you have a young child in your life and you’re unsure when it is time to visit the dentist for their first appointment? We typically tell parents that children should visit the dentist when their teeth begin to emerge or around their first birthday. If the child in your life is older and has yet to see the dentist, there is no time like the present to schedule their first appointment. We know it can be a little intimidating for children to visit the dentist for the first time, so we want to share some helpful tips.
