Children should begin regular dentist visits when they are between six months and a year old. Pediatric dentists can check to make sure that babies’ and children’s mouths are healthy, and that their teeth are coming in properly. Another benefit: children who regularly see dentists learn to be comfortable around dentists and to take good care of their teeth. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that children who begin dentist visits early in life are more likely to have a good attitude about oral health providers and dental visits.
