When Should I First Bring My Child To A Dentist?

When your baby hits 6 months old or when you first start noticing their teeth coming in, you should scehedule your first dental appointment with a dentist that provides pediatric dental services. It is important for kids to see the dentist every six months as dentists can track the development of their teeth and make sure that they are coming in healthy. A dentist can also provide you with some tips and tools to help brush your child’s teeth for the first few years and make sure that their teeth stay healthy.
