My son is 14 months old  and has 6 teeth.And has never been to the dentist at all. Should I start bringing him to the dentist yes or no? Why did you bring them at that age?? What do you think?

also why? because um, they have teeth and thats what a denist is for LOL, also im not going now because she only has 7 teeth and my insurance only pays for 1 visit per year

It was my understanding that depending on the insurance, it's either 2 or 3. Some dentists won't see a child until they are 2.

My DD goes for her first dental exam on the 27th cause she needs it within the first 45 days of school.

Most dentists dont take them until they are 2. But for sure by 3.

I brought my DD a couple months after she turned 2. I paid out of pocket to make sure I got a good dentist :). I didn't like the dentists my plan covered.

I think my kids went around the age of 3...though my youngest will be almost 4 before she goes the first time...but she has lots of other health problems and has a fear of doctors. We wanted to let her get a little older before we took her.

I thought they should start going  once they get teeth...so yes, you should start now, if that's correct...
