Your daughter is indeed very slow with her teeth, but the important thing is that she does have some teeth. Give her a lot more time, at least until she is 18 months or even 2 years and see what happens by then. She will probably have several more teeth if not all by then. If not speak to your dentist at that stage and get an opinion.
