Regular dental checkups for children is really important. Dr. Dave and I have had to treat many patients in the hospital, and it’s easily avoided! At our practice, we can detect the activity of the bacteria that cause tooth decay, and treat the child/family, via a medical model of treatment. We can prevent these things if caught early. We recommend you bring your children in as early as 18 months old, so we can monitor their growth, and teach them good habits to care for their teeth.
