As a father, my kids’ health is one of my top priorities. As a general family dentist, your kids’ dental health becomes one of my top priorities. My staff, many of whom are parents, and I have all fought (and hopefully succeeded) in the battle of getting the kids to brush their teeth.
Teaching children proper brushing habits sets a good foundation for a healthy mouth that will last a lifetime. Dental health is an important component of overall health, so it is important to know that the kiddos are brushing their teeth thoroughly, rather than just putting some toothpaste on a toothbrush and swishing it around for a few seconds.
