Information to Help You and Your Child Develop a Positive Relationship with Their Oral Health

We believe the easiest path to optimal oral health for children is to empower families to make positive oral health choices. Part of this will come from you attending your child’s biannual dental cleanings and exams, where we’ll answer your questions and give you information on how to help maintain your child’s health as they (and their teeth) grow.

In addition, we’ve also answered some common questions about taking care of your child’s oral health below.
