We acknowledge the Canadian Dental Association recommends to assess a well baby check up by a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.
This will aid in caries prevention. However, based on Dr. Ramirez’s clinical experience, he recommends bringing your baby for an exam as soon as possible, ideally right after birth.
The goal is to have your child visit the dentist for well baby check up before there is an issue with their teeth and/or growth and development of the jaws. In most cases, a dental exam will let your child’s dentist catch small problems early.
