There's no question a lot of people fear the dentist.
And if you don't go, that's your decision as an adult. An unhealthy one, but still yours.
However, don't make the same mistake with your young kids.
Dentists recommend bringing your child to the dentist for their first visit between the ages of 2 and 4 generally.
The goal is to make sure they have good habits.
Waiting too long can result in dental infections...not a good thing at all.
So there you go...take your kid to the dentist and get 'em checked out...good oral health is critical at any age.
