Q.

Toddlers and teeth

Hey dr

They say the correct time to bring in a toddler for a check up is at 18 months, is this true. Pls give me some tips on brushing my toddler''s teeth seeing he won''t let me but want to do it himself and i am scared he is missing some spots seeing he chews on the toothbrush mostly and eats the toothpaste

thanks
