How often should I schedule my 2 year old to see a dentist? Also at what age do you recommend parents taking their newborn to see a dentist?
I recommend by age 1, the first check up is scheduled. This is a way for a toddler to get used to being in the dental chair. For the first visit, depending on how well the child cooperates, we may have a parent holding the child while the check up is done. The dentist can be scary for a lot of kids so the sooner the child gets used to seeing the dentist the better. Then every 6 months for a visit is great!
Take your child to a pediatric dentist. They have techniques to make everything seem fun.
