The Division of Pediatric Dentistry at Cincinnati Children's answers frequently asked questions for patients and families, as well as healthcare professionals.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your child's first dental visit be scheduled when the teeth first erupt or, at the latest, by their first birthday. We will provide information at the first visit that will help you raise a cavity-free child.
Cincinnati Children's accepts healthy dental patients up to the age of 18, at which time we will offer transition options. Patients with special needs who are older than 18 years, are managed by Cincinnati Children’s medical specialists, and have limited transition options may be seen in our dental clinic.
We welcome patients with special needs. The oral health care of special needs patients can be addressed within the Cincinnati Children’s network.
