How old

How old were children when they went to the dentist for the first time. Our first visit is tomorrow and she is 4 - her pediatrician said to start going this year...just curious to see how old they were and if they did ok? Mine is sooo excited about going!

  • I think you are suppose to start them at around 6 months but I could be wrong. Mine started at age 2.

  • Mine have been going since they have had teeth.... that means since they were 6 months old.

  • Mine went at 2. The dentist said it's just to get them used to the idea of the visit so they're OK when it's necessary. Many Peds recommend 6 mos, but if you wipe or brush their teeth daily and have no worries, it's fine to wait.

  • Oh and for how they did...they always have done good going to the dentist, but like I said it's been a regular thing, twice a year, every 6 months since they were about 6 months old.
