When Should Children Make Their First Dental Visit?

Perhaps our most frequently asked question when it comes to pediatric dentistry is when children should begin coming in for regular checkups. Generally speaking, you should take your child to the dentist at around six months of age or as soon as possible once their first tooth erupts. Besides catching dental problems earlier rather than later, going to the dentist before their first birthday makes them less nervous for future visits and minimizes fear of the dentist so many children harbor.
