Our moms have always told us how important it is to go to the dentist every six months, and here at Kennedy Family Dentistry, I tend to agree. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential to the long-term health of your mouth, and therefore, your body.
Your mouth endures extreme pressure, intense temperature fluctuations, and about 600 different types of bacteria every day. Combine those extremes with the sugars, starches, and acidic beverages that are consumed daily and you have a recipe for dental disaster.
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.
You want the best for your kids: the best schools, the best career opportunities, the best healthcare. As a father, I understand. As your family dentist, I also want the best for your children. That’s why, at Kennedy Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer children’s dentistry and parent training. This means, instead of just taking your child back, cleaning his teeth, and returning him to your care, we’ll give you and your child advice, tips, and help on the best way to take care of your teeth at home.
