How old was your LO when you took them to the dentist for the first time? What was their experience like?
I'm so confused! Everything I read in parenting magazines and books says to take your child by the time they turn ONE. However, our pediatrician says she recommends around 3 years old, and my own personal dentist doesn't see children until 4! I guess we don't have the best dental insurance, because to see a pediatric dentist who's considered a "specialist" it would cost us over $100.
I was thinking that by taking her to the dentist now at 13 months it would get her used to going and having someone look in her mouth. However, the receptionist at my dental office said one is way too young and would just traumatize her for future dental visits. Not sure what to think now!! Any advice?
