The Importance of Pediatric Dentistry

Find out why every child should visit the dentist.

When your newborn’s teeth haven’t even come in yet it can be hard to imagine taking them to a dentist. However, by the time your child is one year old, they should start to see the dentist every six months for checkups. Those early years are incredibly important for the development and growth of your child’s smile, and the dentists at Dr. Brown and Associates in Ayer, MA provide gentle and friendly pediatric dentistry to meet your little one’s growing needs.
