  • i think they like to see them at age 1....you should call your dentist and see when they will take them though, because some of them dont want to see them when they r that small. My older 2 didnt go until they were 4 and 5, but my yougest went when she was 1 1/2. they just brush them slightly with a regular toothbrush to get them used to the dentist. I was quite shocked when I saw that they charged the same amount for all 3 though!

  • Depends on the dentist.....some will see toddlers from age 1.5 or age 2. They'll give them their own tooth brush as well.
