Childrens Dentistry In Ireland most children do not get to see the dentist until they are about seven or eight when they are called to see the school dentist. For many children this is way too late as they are often well on their way to having their first toothache and indeed may already be suffering. Paediatric dental specialists recommend that as soon as your child gets their first teeth and certainly by their first birthday, take them to the dentist so they become familiar with the experience. Their first visit might be to accompany you or someone else in the family for a routine appointment. If you are worried about going to the dentist, you might also like to ask your partner or a grandparent to attend. It is important that you are positive about your forthcoming visit so that your child does not become unduly anxious. Don’t worry if your child doesn’t want to open their mouth on the first visit to the dentist. The important thing is they get used to being in a dental practice while you have time to ask the dental team for advice on caring for your child’s teeth. Your child should see a dentist regularly. Until their 18th birthday, the time between appointments should never be more than 12 months. Please find attached useful advice booklets from the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry called a “Practical Guide to Children’s Teeth” and “Dental Advice for Parents of Children with Autism”.
