National Children’s Health Month

Jan 23, 2023Office Happenings

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and this year’s theme is Brush Floss Smile! The month-long celebration is a wonderful opportunity to promote oral health for all children. Every child should have their teeth brushed with fluoridated toothpaste twice per day and flossed once per day. It is also important to provide children with healthy snacks, limit their sugar-sweetened drinks, and make sure they visit the dentist every six months.

Positive Communication

Choose a children’s dental practice near you where you and your child feel comfortable. You want good, effective communication and education. Look for a pediatric dentist who takes the time to explain procedures in a child-friendly manner, addressing any concerns or questions your child may have.

Final Thoughts on Finding a Pediatric Dentist Near You

Friendly staff and dentists who are skilled in interacting with children can help alleviate anxiety and create a positive dental experience for you and your child. Have a conversation with the staff when you call or ask to have a quick conversation with one of the pediatric dentists before you make an appointment.

Or, if you go and something does not fit about the experience– the service, the location near you, the atmosphere– then switch to a different dentist for your kids.

By prioritizing your child’s comfort, communication, and comprehensive care, you can ensure that they receive the best possible dental experience and lay the foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
