When should I first take my child to the dentist?
Ideally, schedule your child's first dentist visit before they are 12 months of age, or within six months of their first tooth appearing. While there may not be very much that the dentist needs to do at this stage, it is important to check proper development of the mouth and teeth and set up good habits for the future.
