It’s that time of year again! With many children headed back to school, it’s crucial that parents don’t lose track of their children’s dental health. Keeping up with a child’s immunizations and making sure they frequent the doctor is important, but so are regular visits to the dentist.

Healthy teeth are a critical part of a child’s education. When children have tooth decay, the biggest problem is that they’re in a lot of pain so they can’t concentrate at school and they don’t sleep properly. Poor concentration can lead to lower performance at school and set a child back early in their education.
Parents: make sure to watch your kids when they brush their teeth to ensure they are doing it properly. We recommend the 3-2-1 rule: Eat three meals a day, brush twice a day, and floss once in the evenings!
