At Children’s Dentistry of Bucktown & Wicker Park, Dr. Connell recommends that children are seen for a dental checkup about 6 months after their first tooth erupts, or around their first birthday.

Early preventive care with Dr. Connell and her team is a great way to start healthy oral habits and create a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health. The first visit to our office is one of the most important. At Children’s Dentistry of Bucktown & Wicker Park, our staff will provide your child with caring, compassionate, and loving care that also teaches you and your children techniques to promote healthy oral hygiene for years to come. We use easy to understand, child friendly language to teach concepts like good nutrition, proper brushing and flossing.

Dr. Connell and her team members understand the necessary attention and devotion to a child’s health and developmental needs. We create a positive experience for your child on a personal level as well as one that cares for their oral health care needs. Our positive office environment makes oral hygiene instruction, preventive therapies, and restorative treatment nonthreatening.
