Dental Trivia

When should your child see the dentist for the first time? A. Age 2 to 3 B. 6 months to 1 year C. Only if you are concerned

about a cavity

The America Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see the dentist "at the time of the eruption of the first tooth and no later than 12 months of age". Why? To evaluate growth and development, for early detection of dental disease, or to identify potential problem areas and to perform preventative services. Also it has been shown that "children who had an early preventive dental visit were more likely to use subsequent preventive services and experience lower dentally related costs".
