When should I take my child for their first pediatric dental check-up?
The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that a child's first visit should be when the first tooth erupts in the mouth and no later than age one to two.
This first visit isn't for doing any real work, it's about introducing your child to the dentist's office. Getting them familiar with the office environment in a non-threatening way, thus building trust so the dentist may take a quick peek at his/her mouth.
