4. When should my baby see their dentist?
The Canadian Dental Association recommends your baby see their dentist, within 6 months of getting their first tooth or by their first birthday.17 The reasons to see the dentist include:
- you can find out how to properly care for your baby’s teeth and gums
- your dentist can find problems right away and fix them
- your child can learn that going to the dentist is normal
