I agree with the other posters. If you look at school photos there are way more toothy grins in first grade than in kindergarten. Kids who start losing their baby teeth in the early part of kindergarten are on the early end of the spectrum.

No worries for sure. My son was so bummed cuz he was the ONLY kid in his Kindergarten class to not lose a tooth. He lost his first one shortly before being 6.5 years old... and continued to lose 3 more w/in about 3 months! lol

My son didn't lose his first tooth til he was almost 6.5... It's normal. A 'common' range to lose a first tooth is 5-7 years old.
