when ur child gets their 1st tooth you can call & set up an appointment with the dentist otherwise most ppl take their children to see the dentist for the 1st time between the age 15-18 months old...... teeth hygien is very important in children and the sooner to see a dentist the better.........

I took mine at age 3, when all his baby teeth were out. Only because his being bottle-fed somehow affected the growth of his teeth and his doctor suggested that we bring him to a dentist before he gets an overbite. Of this we were thankful for.

My children have all gone to the dentist just after their first birthday. We have a great dentist that will let the baby sit on my lap while he looks in baby's mouth just to make sure the teeth are coming in right. All 4 of my boys go every 6 months as recommended. I start them out early so that they get used to the dentist and are comfortable going in. That way if they ever need work they aren't afraid.
