February is Children’s Dental Health Month

Once the calendar changes to February a lot of things come to mind. Roses, chocolate, and winter are probably most familiar. What you may not have known is February is also National Children’s Dental Health Month! While getting your significant other roses and chocolate is a good habit to have during this time of year, it is also important to get your children in the habit of taking care of their teeth. DentalAssociates.com suggests the 2-2-2 rule. Make sure your children visit the dentist twice a year and brush and floss two times a day for two minutes. That way even if they enjoy some Valentine’s Day chocolate, they will be able to avoid the cavities that can come with it. Following the 2-2-2 rule will keep your children on track to meet and exceed their dental health goals and keep their smile healthy and beautiful!

We are accepting new smiles and would love to welcome you to our family.
