When should your child first see the dentist?
Generally, it is beneficial to bring your child in for a check-up 6 months after their first tooth erupts, which is usually around the age of 12 months.
Introducing your child to the dentist at a young age, helps them become more comfortable and confident with the dental environment.
Taking your child to the dentist in their early years helps to prevent tooth decay and also is a good opportunity to provide education on how to effectively care for the child’s teeth.
