Kids need to see the dentist by the time they are a year old, or once their teeth start to grow in, whichever comes first.

From dealing with toddlers crying in the waiting room to teens needing braces and not wanting them, every parent has their own dental nightmare stories to tell. The point of this blog is to help new parents navigate through their children's dental needs with less stress and more dignity.
