did you start taking your child to the dentist and eye doctor?



DD is 3 and she is going to be starting school this fall, so i think we have to have her eyes checked before she starts school, but im not sure

If you do a pediatrician dentist is right when they get teeth. Regular dentist depends, the ones here won't see kids until three years old. For eye testing, it again may depend. Our local places won't see kids until they are five years old, so child can communicate well.

Quoting I'm Marbles:" Dentist 1 eye doctor 2"

Thanks. Her reg. doctor never asked if we take her to either. And they normally check her eyes, but i know that that isn't their specialty.

I want to take her to a kid friendly or kids only dentist office. So yes i guess i would want a pediatrician dentist. I just dont want her to be scared of the dentist like i was.
I will have to call around to some of the local offices and see.

Yeah if you find a good pediatrician dentists then they usually are good with getting kids excited for it instead of fearful. If you don't like one you can always try a different one.
