you should take your kids when he or she get those first couple of teeth .... I have already took my daughter and she's only 14 months .....

I would ask your dentist... thats what I did mine said not to bring her in until she is about 2 and 1/2 so we will be going soon... I think it all depends on what the teeth look like and how they are growing in... different for each kid but thats just what my dentist said. hope that helps...

Most dentists won't start until 3 years old.

My son is 3 and he has not seen the dentist yet it is mostly because we can't afford it. I am going to try to get him into see a dentist maybe sometime next year. As long as you brush thier teeth really good I don't see the hurry.

My kids pediatric dentist recommends 2 years old.  Before that, if you are brushing and taking care of their teeth, there should be no reason for them to see a dentist, at least that is my dentist's opinion.
