my son was 10 years old. I would have taken him sooner but we never had insurance and could never afford to pay out of pocket. besides one cavity that had to be filled, his teeth were perfect.

3 and he had 4 cavities! I was horrified, I thought I'd been doing such a good job with his teeth :/ He was a trooper though and it's 4 years later and no cavities since :)
