Most children under age 2 have not yet seen a dentist.
This information comes from a new report by the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on children's health. The information claims that children should start to see a dentist by their first birthday or whenever teeth being to emerge.
The National Poll asked parents of children ages 1 to 5 about the dental healthcare they provide for their children. According to the poll, less than one quarter of 1-year-olds had been to the dentist and only around 44 percent of 2-year-olds had seen a dentist.
