At what age should I bring my child to the dentist for the first time?
By two and a half years of age, most children have cut all of their baby teeth. Toddlerhood is a great time to instil good dental habits, including regular check-ups. Proper care of baby teeth is important because these teeth hold the space for your permanent teeth. Decay in baby teeth increases the risk of decay in permanent or adult teeth.
