Dr. Thompson's tips of the week:

Why choose a pediatric dentist: A pediatric dentist is one who has spent an additional two years--after four years of dental school--learning how to expertly provide first class dental care to small children, teens, and children with special needs.

Your child's FIRST dental visit should be with a pediatric dentist and should happen around their FIRST birthday but no later than their SECOND birthday.

Your child should have all 20 primary(baby) teeth by age 3.

Your child will usually lose their first primary(baby) tooth between ages 5 and 6 and it will be the lower front tooth(incisor) that is first ready for the "tooth fairy"---now get that dollar bill ready for the pillow.
