Dentistry for Kids Las Vegas, NV
Building a proper foundation for oral health and wellness over a lifetime starts in early childhood. Dr. Christopher Lim at Hillside Dental in Las Vegas, NV offers dentistry solutions for kids as well as adults. He understands the importance of working with little ones early to provide proper care and attention, and educate them on oral health care solutions such as brushing and flossing.

Pediatric dentistry is not available at all dental practices, so it is essential that parents locate professionals who have the training and experience in providing this care and attention. Dr. Christopher Lim has years of experience helping children improve their oral health and maintain it.

When should a child first see the dentist?

Dental organizations recommend that children see the dentist at a very early age, before many parents even think to bring their little ones in. Children should be seen as soon as they develop their very first tooth, typically between the ages of six months and one year. If a child does not have teeth by the age of 12 months, it is strongly encouraged that parents schedule an appointment for their child to be evaluated. Once children have their first appointment, they should see the dentist twice a year for examinations and cleanings. As children get older, they can learn from their dental hygienist the benefits of brushing properly and flossing their teeth.
