When Should I Start Taking My Child to the Dentist?

After the first tooth starts to erupt, children should have routine visits to the dentist. This is usually around six months or so. The primary teeth require special care to keep them healthy and strong and create a healthy pathway for the adult teeth to erupt.

Primary teeth will assist in allowing healthy diets and eating routines, create the proper structure for speech development, and provide a healthy start for the permanent teeth. Permanent teeth, or adult teeth, start to show up around the age of 6 or 7 and need strong and healthy roots for continued success.

How Many Times a Year Should My Child See the Dentist?

Like adults, children will need to regularly see their dentist in Clemson twice a year. These visits will consist of regular examinations and a dental cleaning. Routine exams and cleanings can catch early decay, prevent damage, and provide opportunities to make early corrections to flawed or damaged teeth. Every six months – stop in and see the gentle and fun team of dental experts at Carolina Oaks Dental Care. Your kids will love coming here!

Dental Care Education

Creating routine dental care and hygiene practices early on in children’s lives helps them keep their teeth healthy and strong.

Our team of kind and compassionate dental hygienists and dentists will carefully instruct your children in proper dental care procedures like flossing, using mouthwash and brushing teeth and gums. We can also show you different fun methods you can do with them to help your kids become even more invested in their dental care.

They are happy and have the brightest smile


“I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was. I love the location, its very convenient to where I work so making it very easy to visit during my lunch hour. Just a great experience, would definitely recommend”

Scott M

“After moving around the country the last few years I am embarrassed to admit making time for dentist appointments was not a high priority. I went in for a check up and cleaning today and they made me feel very comfortable and welcome. My cleaning was more than a bit over due and I was expecting
to be very sore after. Just the opposite, she was very gentle and understating of my procrastination. I made my next appointments with no hesitation. Pleasant experience and that says a lot when it refers to a dentist appointment”
