Kids grow up. Every parent knows that, and knows the mixed feelings that come with it. When they’re toddlers we take them to a pediatric dentist. How do we know when the time has come to transition to a general dental practice? At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we have some thoughts on that.
Generally speaking, pediatric dentists see their young patients until they’re eighteen years old. But experts say there really is no age limit. Instead, it’s one of those decisions that parents come to naturally. When the time is right, you usually know.
By the time our patients move on to a general dentist, pediatric dentists have met their developmental needs. They are trained in the way that mouths change as people grow up.
Growing up is the whole point. As a family practice, Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria can provide care to every member of your household. People from Mt. Vernon and Alexandria trust us with their dental health, and also come to us for cosmetic dentistry and implants. Call to schedule an appointment today!
