  • Dental Care For Your Baby

    Even before Alex was born, my dentist told me that we should start brushing his teeth as soon as the first tooth appeared. It turns out he didn’t quite mean brushing, but rubbing (as best we can) little nubs over Alex’s teeth to get Alex used to the idea of tooth brushing. The “toothbrush” looks more like a teether than a toothbrush.

    Given the message from my dentist that toothcare starts during infancy, I was surprised when I read this article on a child’s first dental visit and learned that some dentists don’t want to see a child until the age of three or even four!
