As a new mom or dad, you may wonder when it is a good age to bring your child to the dentist for his or her first dental checkup. This is dependent upon the child’s development but the ADA suggests no later than one year old. If your child has developed their first tooth then it is recommended to see a dentist within six months of it first showing. This will help ensure that your child has no decay and can start a healthy dental routing for parents and child.
