Birth to 2 Years

Many milestones occur in your child’s first two years, including going from no teeth to a full set of primary teeth by their second birthday. These first two years are important for your child’s oral development, and our team at Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville would be honored to be a part of caring for their smile. We welcome toddlers from birth to age two and their parents for routine checkups and treatments to care for that growing smile.

Your child’s first dental visit should be scheduled before they are 12 months old. When they receive their first tooth, you can start thinking about making their first appointment. Dr. Chong and our team will help you and your child feel at ease during your first visit. We recommend scheduling a checkup every six months during the first two years. These early dental visits are very important to monitor tooth growth and ensure dental development is on track. Dr. Chong will discuss the best way to care for your child’s emerging baby teeth. They should be brushed at least twice a day with pediatric toothpaste that does not contain fluoride.

Dental Care for Young Children

Why is it important to care for primary teeth that will fall out eventually? First of all, your child needs these teeth for chewing and proper speech. Secondly, the primary teeth pave the way for the permanent teeth. Lastly, the last baby teeth usually do not fall out until age 12. It is important to care for these first teeth to start good oral habits for your child and to protect their oral health.

At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry in Lawrenceville, we are always excited to meet new patients and begin caring for brand-new smiles from the beginning. It is our privilege to serve the families in the Lawrenceville, Atlanta, Milton and surrounding areas. Contact us today to schedule your infant or toddler’s visit with our pediatric dentist. You can expect exceptional dental care in a warm, friendly environment.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
