"First visit by first birthday" sums it up. Your child should be seen by a pediatric dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between 6 and 12 months of age. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child's smile now and in the future.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist by his or her first birthday. Although this might seem young, it is important that newly erupted primary teeth receive the appropriate care from the very beginning.
