Why should I take my child for a dental checkup?
Taking your child to a dental visit is important for preventing cavities and other oral diseases. As a parent, cultivating this habit early on may help reduce dental anxiety in your kids in the future. Some people might ask when is the right time for a child to start seeing the dentist? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child goes to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing at around six months of age. At About Smiles Dental, our in-house dentist can deliver dental services for your child.
