Do kids need to visit the dentist?

Starting good hygiene therapy habits begins at an early age. Dental Associates, PC recommends that children have their first visit for a dental checkup at around age 1 or when the first baby teeth appear. This helps children feel comfortable about visiting the dentist in the future. Regular check ups should begin around age 3.
