Visit the Dentist Before Age 1

Visit the Dentist Before Age 1

That’s right, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry jointly with the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a child’s first dental visit by the age of one. More than 1 in 4 children in the United States have cavities by the time they are 4 years old. Early visits to the dentist provide valuable education to decrease a child’s risk factors for early childhood cavities.
