A dental appointment by the age of one is an opportunity for parents to get valuable advice from the dental team.

Your dentist will do their best to look inside the baby’s mouth but this may not always be possible – see FAQs.

What’s important is you get advice on topics such as:

  • Brushing baby’s teeth
  • A healthy diet
  • Regular dental checks

At this age, understanding how to care for your baby’s teeth moving forwards is critical to their future dental health.

You will find a great summary of how to care for your child’s teeth in our booklet, A Practical Guide to Children’s Teeth.
