Are you a first-time parent? If you are a first-time parent, then it is natural to have a thousand questions about your child’s health. That is why our caring team here at St. George Kids Dental in St. George, Utah, is happy to guide you through this growing process for you and your child.

Caring for your child’s oral health is important because it sets up the health of your child’s smile for years to come. That is why it’s important to bring your child into our office to see Dr. Trent Pryor once they either turn a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These appointments have many purposes, including having their pediatric dentist correct any dental issues that may arise and to help your child become comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they grow older.

Another important thing to remember is to avoid too much sugar intake for your children. Sugar in treats and sweets can cause cavities and even gum disease. Having sugary drinks placed in your child’s bottle can also be putting your child’s oral health at risk as well as their overall health.

If you feel it’s time for your child to visit our friendly pediatric dentist, please call us today at 435-673-3490 to set up an appointment. Our professional team is happy to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your child’s care. So, call us today and let us help keep your child’s smile healthy.
