How old do you have to be to start seeing a dentist?

| February 1, 2011

blogbabyThanks for Asking the doctor your question.  We recommended 3 years old for a  child’s first visit to the dentist for their first cleaning.  If you suspect any signs of cavities, missing teeth, or injuries the child can be seen at any age.
