Oral wellness begins early in life. Children as young as 1-year-old should begin seeing a dentist as soon as their first tooth emerges. Keeping your baby’s gums and teeth healthy can help them enjoy optimal oral development and a beautiful natural smile for many years to come.
Dr. Marvin Kaplan provides pediatric family dentistry to families in the Cincinnati, OH area. We invite children and their parents to visit our comfortable dentist office for comprehensive, compassionate dental health care. Our entire dental care team is committed to ensuring that our youngest patients feel safe at the dentist. We focus on building positive relationships with all of our patients so that visiting the dentist is a welcomed biannual adventure.
Dr. Kaplan often encourages parents to bring their children with them to their dentist appointments from infancy. This helps children to acclimate to the new environment long before they ever need to sit in the chair themselves. We often find that an early introduction to the dentist can help ease anxiety and stress.

Children & Oral Health
Your baby is born with its first set of primary teeth. Oral health begins at birth and should be apart of your child’s daily care. Oral development begins at birth, so be sure to clean your baby’s gums, and visit the dentist as soon as their first tooth emerges.
Tooth decay is a growing health epidemic in children.
Diets high in sugar and poor oral hygiene are the leading culprits of the early development of tooth decay. Make sure your children limit their sugar intake, drink plenty of water and encourage brushing and flossing daily, leading by example. Children who develop decay early in life are more likely to experience future dental concerns. Help your child maintain their beautiful, natural smile by encouraging healthy habits and a good at home oral hygiene routine as early as possible.
Our dental care team can make personalized recommendations for good brushing and flossing techniques during your child’s dental health exam.
