When should I take my child to see the dentist?

When should I take my child to see the dentist? When should I take my child to see the dentist is a popular question among new parents? The Vartanian Dental Group in Mission Viejo Ca specializes in children’s dentistry or pediatrics, as we call it in dental terms. So, when is the best time to bring your child in to see a dentist for the first time?

From that moment on, I have been fascinated with dentistry. I brushed like crazy, brushing my teeth several times a day. I did not want to get cavities again. Fast forward to nineteen years old and I went over the handle bars on a motorcycle with no helmet, face planted into the asphalt, I remember waking up in the hospital with no front teeth. This was my first experience with dental surgery and my first kind of cosmetic dentistry. The entire repair process took several months. One tooth was just a nub, so they had to build it up, the other front tooth has a little more tooth to work with and the third was chipped. I had been missing one of my front four teeth, so there were only three there anyways. The challenge was to rebuild two teeth, grind down another, so all three could be capped. Then they took my K-9 tooth and converted it to the fourth front tooth to make all four front teeth uniform and symmetric. Long story short, I love my smile....
