Children should start seeing the dental therapist when they are still an infant, by 6 months of age. 

Children’s teeth and baby teeth are important and should be cared for as you would for adult teeth. 

Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. 

Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. 

Early childhood tooth decay is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
