My son is 17 months old and his first dentist appointment is tommorow. What should I expect ? What do they do? TIA

For my kids they looked in their mouths. Brushed their teeth, gave them new tooth brushes, talked to the kids and make them comfortable, and told us any concerns they might have (my son has a slight underbite I think it was and an attached upper lip). If there are any problems they'll bring that up, if not it's more to look at them and get the kids used to it.

They asked about his diet habits, if we brushed his teeth, gave him a tooth brush and let him brush a bit and we were out. He was 15 1/2 months.
