Chrissy Teigen is being attacked on social media after posting a video of her daughter, Luna, going to the dentist.
It was the 3-year-old’s first visit to the dentist and she was sitting on her grandmother's lap while Luna learned about dental care by brushing the teeth of a stuffed alligator.
Her critics on social media say that 3 years of age is too late for a child's first dentist appointment.
"Can’t believe that's her first dentist appointment,” wrote one person.
"Luna definitely should have seen a dentist multiple times by now,” added another.
Apparently, Teigen was bracing herself for the trolls. "Was waiting for this. U guys never fail me," she responded.
Pediatric dentist Emille Agrait spoke to Inside Edition about the best age to first bring a child to the dentist. She said that children should go to the dentist for the first time between 6 to 12 months, but going when the kid is 2 or 3 is “not that bad.”
As for the outrage Teigen is facing, the dentist said, "I don’t think this is the moment to be judgmental about how a mom wants to take care of their child.”
