Laughter, good advice, presents, and good oral health – all these await your children at their next dental visit. Children’s dental visits are intended to be educational sessions, where kids learn the importance of good oral health, as well as proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Flossing? Yes, flossing should be a part of a child’s daily routine because it helps prevent cavities in between teeth, which kids get so often!

Cavities can be caused by sugary foods, poor hygiene, and family history, and is the most common chronic disease in children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that a child’s first visit occurs by age 1. This gives parents the opportunity to learn how oral health affects a child’s overall health and helps the child get used to the dental setting.
