Our friendly dentists and team enjoy treating children, and we welcome you to bring your children to our office for gentle, quality care. Generally, your child’s first tooth erupts at about six months of age, and we recommend that their first visit be around the age of two years. Some of the activities that may be performed in your child’s first few dental visits include a gentle yet thorough dental exam, teeth brushing, or a simple ride in the dental chair. It is important that your child is assimilated to coming to the dentist at an early age because this will lay the foundation for their future oral hygiene habits. The best care you can give your child dentally is leading by example: brushing at least twice a day for two minutes, flossing at least once a day, eating a healthy diet, and visiting the dentist on a regular basis.
Another important reason to bring your child to our office is to ensure that your child’s primary teeth are healthy. Primary teeth are very important because they play an essential role in guiding your child’s permanent teeth into place. If you have any questions about the benefits of pediatric dentistry in Findlay, Ohio, or about any of the other services we offer, we invite you to contact Dr. Mutchler and Dr. Lewis today. At Mutchler & Lewis Family Dental Care, we are eager to help you and your child maintain healthy, happy smiles for life!
