First Visit

When Should Baby Visit the Dentist for the First Time?

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the first dental visit should be by age one or within six months of the eruption of the first tooth.

At this time, the dentist can give you information on:
  • Baby bottle tooth decay
  • Infant feeding practices
  • Mouth cleaning
  • Teething
  • Pacifier habits
  • Finger-sucking habits
