Q.

Dental visit

Hi Doc,

I just need to know when is the right time to take a child for a first dental checkup. I have a 2yrs-9mths old son. His milk teeth are still fine so far (I try to brush them twice a day) however I feel that I still need some professional advice regarding ways to keep his teeth clean and healthy.

Any advice?

Thanks.

the first dental visit should ideally be done when the first teeth erupt. your child is almost 3 -a dental visit should be scheduled as soon as possible
