When should your little one see a dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) recommends all children have a dental checkup every six months, starting at the age of 1 year. These visits allow your child's dentist to closely monitor any new changes in your child's mouth, even before they start getting most of their baby teeth. It's also an opportunity to build trust and a comfort level with the dentist so that your child develops healthy routines and enjoys going to the dentist! Your child's dentist may suggest additional checkups if your child seems to be more susceptible to cavities or if they are showing signs of other orthodontic problems that need to be monitored as they grow.
