1st Dental check up age 1, not 2 or 3. See a Pediatric Dental a specialist for all the same reasons you see a Pediatrician.

In brief: 2 lower middle teeth

Baby teeth can start appearing at 6 months, but some babies don't have teeth until 1 year of age.
There are 10 upper and 10 lower teeth, for a total of 20 baby teeth. The central incisors come first, usually lower before upper, and appear at 6-8 months. Lateral incisors appear at 9-10 months. First molars and canines appear at about 18 months, and second molars at 24-30 months.

In brief: Lower two front ones

Typically the front lower two teeth come in first, followed by the upper two front teeth.
Then the ones on either side of the lower front ones, again followed by the ones on either side of the upper front ones. Teeth typically erupt in pairs, with the lower coming in before the upper.
