Dr. Roxanne Lawrence and our dental team are excited to serve patients of all ages, including children, at South Jackson Family Dental. To keep your child’s smile healthy, our dentist provides children’s dentistry in Jackson, Mississippi. Help your child develop good dental habits while they are young that they will continue throughout their lifetime. Generally, children have all of their primary teeth (baby teeth) by age three. We recommend that you schedule your child’s first dental visit around the age of three.
Your child’s first dental visit will be short and will involve little treatment. The purpose of this visit is to give your child a chance to meet our dentist in friendly, comfortable way. We want your child to feel calm and relaxed in the dental chair. Our dentist may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during their dental exam. Our dentist will examine all of your child’s teeth for decay, check their bite, and look for any potential dental problems. Our dentist will educate you about dental care basics for children and answer any questions you may have.
We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule your child’s next visit.
