First Teeth Checkups in Louisville, Kentucky
What Age Should First Checkups Be?
It can be tricky to know when to bring a baby to the dentist. Because baby teeth grow in at different times, it can be easy to overlook that first initial appointment. Most parents come in when their children are over 2 years old because all their baby teeth are grown in. Don't delay that first checkup any later than it needs to be. Once your child's teeth are grown in, please schedule an appointment with us.
