Re: The first dentist appointment?

We have taken DS every 6 months for a cleaning/check up since he turned two. He LOVES going to the dentist. I used to work for one, so he's very comfortable in an office, and is very knowledgeable about the instruments being used and the procedures being done.

I took Arianne when she was 3 and will be taking Liam in the next month or so for his first appt. It should be interesting!

Re: The first dentist appointment?

I took DS when he was 3.5 and the dentist said that most kids don't need to go until they're 3, unless there are issues. The hygienists pointed out that if a child won't sit and open his/her mouth, there's no point showing up for a routine cleaning.

Re: The first dentist appointment?

My daughter just turned 3 and I have yet to take her. I know that I need to, though. It's just a matter of finding one that I'm comfortable with.
