  • I talked to our dentist who said not to bring them in until they are 3- I brought my son in the week he turned 3. they just really count theit teeth, show them how the tools work and want to make it fun and comfortable for them - he got a new spongebob tooth brush and stickers too so he thought it was cool!!

  • He went at 20 months, yes there is a charge, I'm not sure how much though because his insurance covered it. It went really well.... his dentist was awesome. They just look at their teeth and that's about it

  • the pediatrition says 18-36 months old for the first visit. I took my oldest when she was 2 1/2 and my other dd at 20 months old. Our insurance covered everything.

  • They should go when they get their first tooth is what I've heard but my kids brush daily and they're 2 and 4 and haven't been to the dentist yet...
