CHILD
VISITS

At Knutson Family Dental

We see patients of all ages. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommends a child be seen within 6 months of their first tooth erupting or by their 1st birthday! We like to see your little ones based on those guidelines for what we call a “peekaboo” exam. These exams allow your little one to get used to coming to the dentist & for us to evaluate their tooth eruption and make sure there are no early signs of decay. Once your child is 3, we begin to do more of the traditional cleaning appointments! Most children can be seen at our office for dental treatment they may need beyond a cleaning, but Dr. Knutson also works closely with pediatric dentists and orthodontists in the area for further treatment your child might need.
