We see patients from birth up to age 21. We recommend you bring your child for their first visit to the Pediatric Dentist be around age 1. At that time, we review home care recommendations and perform an oral exam. The first cleaning appointment with our hygienist will be between ages 2 1/2 - 3. At that time, your child will get their initial cleaning, brushing instructions and a thorough exam by Drs. McCarty. We generally see our patients on a 6-month basis.
