"First dental visit" - Tips to Grow By

- [Narrator] Grow by is sponsored by

Akron Children's Hospital.

- I'm talking to Dr. Jeffrey Berlin

about when to take your child to the dentist.

- So the best time to take your little one to the dentist

is when you first start to see any teeth growing,

and no later than their first birthday.

The reason for that is so that

we can make sure everything's growing

and developing appropriately.

It also helps to alleviate fear,

and as they get older, they're used to the process,

and coming to the dentist is fun

and easy and not scary for them.
