My little girl is 8 months and has 2 teeth already out of curiosity when did you start brushing your little ones teeth and when is the right time and age to take them to the dentist.

You're supposed to start brushing them as soon as they appear.

My dentist was happy to have DC registered very young - before teeth appeared. I think DS2 was about your DDs age when he had his first check up, but it was really more about getting him used to the dentist experience than anything like an adult check up. I tickled him until he opened his mouth for long enough for the dentist to count his teeth, then he got a sticker from the dentist and that was that.
