When Should Children Start Going To The Dentist?

As a parent, you are faced with many tough decisions. When to take your child to the dentist doesn’t have to be one of them. So when should you take your child for his first dental appointment?Taste and Discover

The answer is quite simple. A child should make his or her first visit to the dentist before the age one. This first visit serves many purposes, including:

  1. This is a good way to educate parents about how to care for baby’s teeth.
  2. Helps acclimatize children to the dentist and the importance of proper dental care.
  3. This visit will identify any pressing dental issues that may be plaguing your child.

After this initial visit is when the standard every-six-month dental visit recommendation begins.
