While there is no set age for a first visit to the orthodontist, it is recommended to have a child’s teeth checked between 7 and 10 years old. However, some people have their first visit when they are teenagers. Getting an initial consultation does not mean your child will need treatment or get braces immediately. It all depends on the situation.

During a child’s first visit at Redmond Orthodontics, the teeth, gums and bite will be examined during our free consultation with Dr. Baldwin. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for your child!
