Important Reminder for Your Child's Dental Health

** It's not always what your child eats ~ most of the time it's what they drink that can cause cavities at a young age. Dilute any juice they drink at home with water. Buy only 100% juice in the pouch or box! Give them water after their teeth are brushed in the evening if they need a drink at bedtime. **

** Some studies have shown cheese helps reduce cavities! A good rule of thumb is to provide fruit and vegetables as snacks while serving cookies & candy as a dessert ~ after the meal while digestion is in full swing! **

** Brush and Floss your child's teeth in the morning and at bedtime every day! They will not have the dexterity to clean them properly on their own until about age 8. **

**Visit the dentist for the first time by age 3. Earlier if you see a problem or your child has a hard hit to the mouth. After evaluating your child's dental health, the dentist will tell you how frequently the child should be seen. **

Happy Healthy Smiles make Happy Healthy Kids!

We are proud to offer digital X-rays which significantly reduce (up to 75%) the amount of radiation exposure compared to traditional x-rays. Zoom Whitening is available for those who want the convenience of 1-hour whitening.
Many adults are taking advantage of "invisible braces" called Invisalign which consist of a series of clear, transparent trays that are an alternative to metal, unsightly braces.
