A baby’s first dental visit: One of the preventive dental care options is “baby’s first dental visit.” According to the website, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and most dental professionals recommend scheduling a baby’s first dental appointment within six months of the first tooth erupting and no later than the first birthday.

Patients with special needs: Care for special needs patients includes services for children with special needs. According to the website, children with special health care needs are often at a higher risk of dental concerns because some genetic conditions can cause tooth eruption delays, tooth misalignment, or crowding and gum disease. Other factors contributing to elevated oral health problems include chronic teeth grinding, immunocompromised systems, connective tissue disorders, medications containing sugars, and physical challenges that interfere with brushing and flossing.

About the owner: Dr. Tyffani Palmer, DDS, is a board-certified pediatric dentist. According to the website, she attended dental school at Howard University and participated in various organizations, such as the American Student Dental Association and the Student National Dental Association.
