How old was your baby when you took them to their first dentist appointment?

My dd is going to be 1 in less than a month and she has 12-13 teeth( 8 that are completely through and 4-5 that are just cutting through now). Is one year too young for the dentist?

  • My dentist doesn't see children until they are 3. Call your dentist office, it just depends on the Dr.

  • 18 months. According to our family dentist, all children should have their first dental appointment by age 2

  • Mine were all about 3, however, your pediatric dentist wants to see kids as soon as they get their first teeth.
