At what age should I take my children to the dentist?

It must be made clear that any time is a good time for a dental checkup but there are various points to keep in mind.

Besides a paediatric doctor, it is important that a checkup is done by your dentist in Menorca to confirm the baby's health. It is something very simple which allows us to check on the complete mouth health of a newly born and put forward a quick solution to any anomalies which may make breast feeding difficult , such as a short frenulum of the tongue.
