Most Manitoba Dentists offer a child’s first dental visit prior to the age of three at no charge through the Free First Visit program. Research has shown it to be highly successful and the profession is held in high regard by grateful parents.
Public acceptance that a child’s first dental visit should take place prior to their first birthday is growing as parents are becoming aware of the benefits of establishing an early start to their child’s professional dental care.
BaBy’s first checkup should Be
done By age one
or within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth.
Based on the benefits to the public and the profession, the program is continuing with a re-branding that
the first visit take place prior to the child’s first
birthday, even though it will be available for free
until their third birthday.
Watch for an in-office and multi media campaign this fall.
All dentists are encouraged to participate in this worthwhile program.
