Getting your child on the right dental care path early can pay off big over his or her lifetime. And there are a good number of resources to assist you.

We came across this excellent video from WedMD that discusses teaching your toddler how to brush. It’s worth a quick look, and it provides some great advice for little ones who might be resistant:

Charlotte Dentistry recommends that you schedule your child’s first cleaning around the age of 3. Our dental processionals take great care to make your little one’s first visit comforting, supportive and pleasant. Baby teeth aren’t permanent, but their impact can be. They are critical for helping children speak clearly and chew naturally, and they also aid in forming the path for the permanant teeth.

We look forward to assisting your little one with caring for his or her teeth.
