well i got told at my 9 months old review bythe health visitor we should get him booked in as soon as possible as they can get used to it.we then had to see a consultant for his not sleeping at a yr old and she too told me theres no right time to take him but the younger the better.he's 14mths now and we havent got him booked in yet just because i'm not sure how we will keep him still for that long!the other half will have to take him tho as i have an enormous fear of the dentist which i DO NOT want to pass on hehe!

i recently registered the whole family at a new dentist and although he said its not necessary to see his teeth until hes 3 its better to make sure he has one because toddlers are noturious for making teeth wonky, but anyway he asked questions dummy/thumb/how old when he got teeth/how many and just got me to make him open his mouth while sat in the buggy he could tell they were doing ok from some big arghs!!!

Yeah the others are quite right,younger the better,my eldest is 2 and he's had 3 check ups,youngest recently turned 1 and he's had a check up-a buggy job with lots of quick peeks mind!!!!
But then i am obsessed-was a dental nurse for 11 years!!!!!!

Hope all goes well.
I took riley to every check up we had at the dentist and when he started getting his teeth our dentist would let him sit on our lap and just get him to open up,as tie went on he would happily sit in the chair on his own and the dentist would just poke a finger round.
You wont hae to book him for an appt but just register him there for the future.
