By the time they are a year old, children should be established with a dentist, and some parents begin taking their children to the dentist the minute the first tooth breaks through (usually around 6 months of age). These are according to the recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, an organization that helps to guide professionals AND parents to the right dental care for their children.
