1When should I take my child to a dentist for the first time?
Around the age of six months, your child will begin to cut their first teeth. Children should see a dentist by the age of one or within six months of receiving their first teeth. Please schedule an appointment as soon as possible if you suspect something is wrong or if your child is in pain or discomfort. It's never too late for a child to see a dentist for the first time.
2How often should I take my child to a dentist?
The general rule for how frequently a youngster should see a dentist is the same for adults. Generally, every six months, unless a dentist specifies otherwise. Depending on their own demands and finances, some patients choose every three months or every eight months. Between appointments, you should not wait more than a year. If your child is in any discomfort or pain, schedule an appointment right away.
