A report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that the rate of preschoolers with cavities has spiked to an alarming 28%, which translates into more than one in every four children between the ages of 2 and 5. It is the leading childhood disease – five times more common than asthma and 20 times more common than diabetes, however dental disease is preventable.
To promote dental prevention, our doctors and team offer complimentary educational programs discussing topics, such as:
- Baby Bottle/Nursing Decay
- Diet and Nutritional Awareness
- Homecare Procedures, such as proper brushing and flossing techniques
- Fluoride Use
- The Child's Dental First Visit
- Traumatic Injuries
