It's not too early to find a dentist for your baby!

Jennifer Shu, MD posted:
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the first dental visit around the time the first tooth appears and no later than the 1st birthday. While X-rays and thorough cleanings won't be expected in these early visits, your dentist will examine your baby's teeth and give you advice on how to best care for them. The AAPD web site has a dentist finder page, or you may wish to check with your dental insurance provider for a pediatric dentist in your area.
