Thats perfectly fine. This stage is called as mixed dentition stage as d child has both milk and permanent teeth present at this stage and it will be there till 13-14 yrs of her age till all her milk teeth shed away and permanent one erupts. So don't worry and just be careful with her brushing as the child finds it difficult to clean properly in mixed dentition and there are more chances of decay.
