Dr. Afshin Riazi – a Markham dentist who makes dentistry a fun learning experience for your child!
As your Markham family dentist, we provide a family-oriented dental practice and children are always welcome. We ensure that your child’s experience with us conveys a feeling of trust and security leaving them feeling comfortable and open to learning about their teeth and oral health.
At what age should I bring my child to the dentist?
According to the Canadian Dental Association, your child’s first dental visit should be by the age of one, or within the first six months from the eruption of the first tooth. While most parents are unaware of its importance, early care in children’s teeth and oral health is essential. Education, prevention and good hygiene are among the reasons why we like to see your children at an early age. Our goal is to introduce and promote the gentle, caring and friendly dental approach that will get your children excited to come back for their next dental visit.
How often should children visit the dentist?
At Greensborough Dental, we urge you to bring your child in for a dental visit every 6 months. Because they are growing and changing so rapidly, we pay special attention to erupting permanent teeth, growth and development of facial bones, and smile aesthetics and function. We monitor the effects of oral habits including baby bottles, pacifiers and thumb sucking. Orthodontic evaluations take place when your child exhibits signs of undesired development.
