The AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) and AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommend you take your child to a dentist within 6 months of them getting their first tooth, or starting at age 1. Most of that visit will be talking and answering questions. Following your child’s initial dental visit, they should be seen at least every 6 months for check-ups and cleanings.
