When Should You Bring Your Child Into Our Office For The First Time?
As a general rule of thumb, you should take your child in for their first visit on their first birthday or six months after their first tooth appears.
If your child was born with a natal tooth, you should schedule an appointment immediately to have mobility assessed. Natal teeth can potentially cause mouth sores and create nursing issues.
