Parents have been asking me, “When should I take my child to the dentist?” The answer may surprise some of you. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should have their first dental visit when the first tooth erupts or by their first birthday-whichever comes first. This is to establish a “dental home” and to get your child comfortable being in a dental setting. Prevention is very important and we want to see your little ones keep their pearly whites.
