At What Age Should My Child See an Orthodontist?

Something parents should be aware of is that all children should get a check-up with an orthodontist no later than age 7. An orthodontist can spot subtle problems with emerging teeth and jaw growth, even while some baby teeth are still present. A check-up can reveal any current needs for treatment, inform parents that treatment should be considered when the child is older, or provide the good news that treatment may not be needed.

It’s never to early to start kids on the way to a future full of smiles!  So we’d like to tell you about our Super Cool Kids Club!
