For children, getting used to a good dental care routine is important. There are now excellent electric toothbrushes as well as toothpastes and rinses specifically designed for young children. Dr. Nagle recommends your child have their first visit to the dentist at around three years of age. While very few children this young have significant dental issues, it is important to get a young child used to seeing a dentist early so they become comfortable for the future. A dental visit is scary for many, even more so sometimes for young children. It is important to handle their visits with care and Dr. Nagle, a father of 3 small children, makes sure they have a fun and happy experience.
