So it's Benefit Renewal time here at work & I'm wondering if I should add Evan on to my Dental & Eye coverage? At what age do babies normally first see a dentist or eye Dr? I've researched online a bit but wanted to know what you ladies think/do?

I would not add him for a couple more years. Maybe around 2 - 3 years of age. My DS1 is two and has not seen a dentist or an eye doctor.

I asked my dentist and they said between the age of 3 & 4, DD1 went for her first visit just this past week, she will be 4 in March. If you renew every year, I would wait until he is about 3 to add him. But, you could always ask your dentist. As for the vision, unless you notice something off, you don't need to add him and most health plans you can use for one eye doc appt a year, you could start with that and if they find something off then you could start him on the vision plan.

I didn't add Pax to dental or vision! Next year I'll add him to dental. I will watch him like a hawk for vision bc my vision is exceedingly poor and with earlier intervention it wouldn't be so bad.
