Dentist for Toddlers?

Posted by on Sep. 14, 2011 at 11:51 AM

 I have a question. DS will be 2 and most of our pediatric dentists dont start taking patients until they are 2 or 3 around here.

I am planning on making an appointment for his first dental exam, but I am curious as to how often after the first visit do they ususally go in for ? Every 3 months? 6 months ? Annually?

Just curious.


Thanks,

M

Every 6 months as long as everything is fine. The ped dentists here start seeing hem 6 months after the first tooth erupts.
