    I found a pediatric dentist (recommended by our ped) and took DS right after his 2nd birthday.

    We took ours when the got their teeth. Usually sometime in the first year. My 3rd child is 22 months and he's been to the Dentist once with his second appointment next week.

    Both DC went for the first time between 2 and 2.5 yo. They are seen every 6 months.

    he was about 1. i know he was younger than 1 1/2, because i know he still had his ostomy (because i had to change it in the back of the suv in the rain. good times.)

    it was a pediatric dentist and his teeth are green from bili staining and demineralized from being on tpn while they were forming. i might not have been as aggressive having him seen except that he had potential issues.

    DD1 went for the first time around 3. DD2 and DS were about 2 and DD3 was 1. They go in every six months.

    Both our dentist and our pediatrician recommend starting at 3, so that's what we've done.

    Think our ped dentist recommends one. My 2 yo hasn't been seen yet. Will take him soon.

    DD was 18m. Waited until we got her on insurance, but the recommended at 1. DS was about a year. The love going. We see a ped dentist.

    Around here the Ped dentist says 12mos, but Ped says 3 years. We started at 3 with DD1 and 2 with DD2. They will both be going every 6 mos.

    I can't believe how widely this varies!

    DS1 went for the first time around 18 months when I noticed a problem with one of his top teeth.

    Because of Ds1's issues, Ds2 went at around 9 months when he got his first tooth.

    Both go every 6 months since.
