Savannah pediatric dentists Dogwood Dentistry

Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry in Savannah is accepting new patients and you can request an appointment online by visiting their Web site here.  

A child’s first dental visit should be by age ONE. 

That’s the message from Dr. Krista Hinchey @ Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry of Savannah  & The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Krista reiterates AAPD’s recommendation that infants need to see the dentist before their 1st birthday.

Studies show that dental costs for children who have their first dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the first five years than for those who do not see a dentist prior to their first birthday, Dr. Krista said.
