Q. When should my child first see a dentist?
A. “First visit by first birthday” sums it up. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between six and twelve months of age. Early prevention and education will help avoid future dental problems.
