When Should My Child First Visit the Dentist?

Parents know that having a pediatrician is an important part of maintaining a kid's health.  Trained physicians can tell you if your child is meeting milestones and how to navigate any questions you have.

Finding a pediatric dentist is much the same, only for your child's teeth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that every child should visit their dentist after the eruption of their first primary tooth and prior to 12 months of age.

In doing so, parents can learn how to take care of a child's teeth using prevention-based techniques prior to the development of any dental disease. It's also a great opportunity start the process of helping your child establish a lifetime of good oral health habits.
