  • Two and a half. Our Ped said two, but the dentist said not until they will open their mouths without being forced to do so.

  • i just took my 4 year old two days ago for the first time.

    alot of people (well a lot of cafemoms, nobody in person) bashed me for waiting so long. but im glad i did, because while at the dentist with her the other day i mentioned bringing my 2 year old in soon. and the dentist herself strongly urged me to wait til closer to 3 because a lot of her 2 year old patients are not sitting still or cooperating for them.

    No ones buisness but yours and your dentists. My son had a lot of teeth at 18 months and the dentist was fine with him coming at that age.

  • oh and she also said if my 2 year old was having dental problems though then i could take her in. but unless she is, to wait a little longer to take her. they want their first experience to be as non-scary as possible, so that they don't develop of a fear of the dentist.
