Why Should Infants and Toddlers See a Dentist Regularly?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) has revised its guidelines on infant oral health care and now recommends that infants 6 to 12 months old should be seen by a dentist.

Parents that take a proactive approach to their infant oral health care can make a difference that will last a lifetime
