It is never to early to instill good oral habits in your children. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, in order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his or her first birthday. Starting good habits early will help ensure that good oral hygiene will stick with your child through their entire adulthood.
