That seems kind of odd...have you asked her pediatrician about it? Or consulted a pediatric dentist?

I think it's about 16 months that they start to worry/wonder a little.  My DD1 didn't get her first little tooth until she was 14 months old.  She did just fine eating pretty much whatever she wanted... even steak!  LOL  They have strong gums!  Anyway, if I were you, I'd ask the pedi and see what they think, but wouldn't worry too much.  I think, even at 16 months, they'd just have a look (maybe go to a dentist for x-rays) to make sure it all looked good.  I always heard that the later they get their teeth the better because they are stronger/have less chance for cavities!

That is a little late.  My son was 11 months before his first but 15 months seems long.  You may call a pedi dentist just to check.

My daughter was a very late teether, at 2 yrs she only has 12 teeth which is also unusual.  She got her first two teeth at about 15 months.  Late teething is connected to later puberty.  Were you a late bloomer? It is also connected to nutrition, if she is well nourished I wouldnt worry.  How is the rest of her growth?

that somes very late to not even have one.. I'd be a bit concerned at talk to the pediatrician or even a dentist about this..

I looked it up, and most babies should at least have signs of teething or one tooth by a year old.. if you don't have any signs of teething and no teeth this far past a year old, definitely discuss it with yoru pediatrician!!!

I would be too, I don't know if it's considered normal or not.

I'd ask her dentist. :)

 My daughter that doesn't have teeth yet is a twin, her sister got her first tooth about a month ago and now has the two lower ones, which are most of the way out. My girls wert born 6 weeks early, so that's why i'm not TOO concerned yet. I check their mouth every morning for teeth lol, I have been talking with their pediatrician about their teeth since their 12 month check up. I haven't taken them to the dentist yet but that might be my next step just too make sure everything is okay. Thanks for everyone's reply!
