When Should I Bring My Child to their First Dental Appointment?

Having good dental health and habits is very important. A big part of having good dental health is seeing a dentist on a regular basis. Ideally, most people should see the dentist at least twice per year. To ensure that your kids have healthy teeth and are in the habit of seeing the dentist, you should take them to the dentist on a regular basis. One question people have is when they should take their kids to their first dental appointment.

When Should I Take My Child To their First Appointment?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, you should take your child to the dentist at a rather young age. Ideally, all kids should have their first dentist appointment in by the time they are one year old or within six months after they develop their first tooth. Generally speaking, kids will start to grow their teeth when they are around six months of age.
