  • about 10 months old I think for her first check up and we still go every 3 months for a cleaning and checkup.

  • My dentist said at 3 years old he likes to see kids...Mine is 1 1/2 now...I don't see why you'd bring a baby once they got teeth. How do they even sit there?!

  • 18 months for a look-see. They didn't start getting cleanings until they were 3.
