February is a special month for all of us at Mint Hill Dentistry – it is National Children’s Dental Health Month! Each year, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors this important month to help raise awareness to families and children about how to achieve good overall oral health.
Developing effective cleaning habits at an early age, along with a healthy diet, can help children get a jumpstart on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. To help avoid cavities, it is also important to schedule regular dental visits for your children, every six months just like adults!
At Mint Hill Dentistry, we know everyone is busy so we make appointments easy and convenient for your schedule. We offer dental cleaning appointments for multiple family members at one time, because we have six dental hygienists working each day.
We are committed to helping, along with parents and/or care takers; our youngest patients have healthy gums and strong teeth. Our hygienist can provide you with tips and tricks to ensure you are properly caring for each of your child’s teeth, no matter the age.
Throughout the month we will be posting more tips and information in our ‘What’s New’ section on the Mint Hill Dentistry website. We will give you tips on how to care for your children’s teeth and even your babies!
In addition, follow us on Facebook for more information and tips to help you care for your children’s teeth throughout the entire month of February!
