Advice and Education on Your Dental Health

February Is National Children’s Dental Health Month

Your baby may not have cut any teeth yet, be in the teething stage or have a mouth of toddler teeth.

If you’re the parent or caregiver of a little one, it’s important to make oral hygiene a part of your child’s overall preventative care. And, since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, it’s a good time to schedule an appointment.

Frequently asked questions from parents include:

  • When should my child have his/her first dental checkup?
  • My child sucks his/her thumb; is this going to create a dental problem in the future?
  • What’s the best way to clean/brush my little one’s teeth?
  • What’s the best way to prevent cavities?
  • When do kids typically start to lose baby teeth?
  • Does my child need a mouth protector for sports?

These are just a few of the questions you might have about your child’s teeth and overall oral health. At Meyer & Johns, we’re excited to be your family dentist. We enjoy seeing young children and their parents/caregivers taking dental health seriously, and we’re ready to help you and your kids.

Remember that teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Getting an early start is a great way for your child’s teeth to remain strong and healthy. To give your little one a healthy start, schedule a checkup with Meyer & Johns. Thank you for trusting us with your family’s dental care.
