The AAPD Recommends bringing your child to the dentist before his or her first birthday.
Caring for your child baby teeth is very important for their oral and over all health care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a baby should see a dentist on their first birthday. By doing so a dentist will be able to check your child teeth for tooth decay as well as check for any signs of early developmental problems. For new parents it give you a chance to ask the dentist about any questions or concerns you might have about your baby dental care.
