Our goal at Hillwood Family Dental in Magnolia, TX is to provide a fun and comfortable place to introduce kids to dentistry. In accordance with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, we recommend that your child first be seen by a dentist for kids before their first birthday. This visit helps your child become familiar with the dentist and the dental office. Making this first visit comfortable and enjoyable helps your child develop trust in your dentist and comfortable at future visits. This visit also provides you the opportunity to ask questions.

As with all items relating to children, this is entirely up to the parents' discretion.
Hillwood Family Dental is the preferred family dentist for many patients in the Magnolia area.
