The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center suggest that children visit the dentist within six months after getting their first tooth or no later than age 1. At this visit your dentist will:

  • Check for cavities
  • Check your child’s dental development
  • Talk with you about how to care for your child’s teeth
  • Start your child off with a healthy smile
