Q:  How soon should children be seen by a dentist?
A: The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child be seen by a dentist as soon as his or her first tooth appears and no later than 12 months of age. A dental visit at an early age is a well baby check-up for the teeth. Your child's oral heath affects their overall health. Tooth decay is a major cause of illness in children. On average, Arizona children have five teeth affected by tooth decay, three times higher than the national average. Parents can brush and floss children's teeth daily as soon as the first tooth appears.
