Infants and Children: The first dental visit should occur shortly after the first tooth erupts and no later than the child’s first birthday. It is very important that primary teeth are kept in place until they are lost naturally. [More Dental Health Information from American Academy of Pediatrics]
Adolescents: Teens should visit the dentist twice a year. Appearance and self-image are very important to them. Decayed or poorly positioned teeth or jaws might make them more self-conscious. [See common oral health problems in adolescents]
