Thanks everyone for your replies. We just saw the dentist this morning for our regular check-up. My ds had a new set of x-rays done and the permanent teeth have come down a little bit, but the dentist says it will likely be another 1 to 1 1/2 years yet considering how high up they still are. And, yes, his baby teeth did come in kind of late too (the first four coming in at age 11 months). And since many (well, most) of his classmates all have several permanent teeth, I thought something might be wrong. However, the dentist confirmed what you have all stated...some kids just get their teeth later than others. Thanks again.
