February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health MonthFebruary is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM). If you have a baby or toddler and have questions about when to schedule an initial dental appointment or concerns about baby teeth, thumb-sucking etc., we’d like to hear from you.

In support of NCDHM, Moore Family Dental would like to provide you with answers to these important health concerns. We encourage any parent to contact us regarding the dental well-being of their child. We are ready to discuss (either by phone or in person) best practices for establishing a life of great oral health. The earlier these habits can be formed, the more natural and long-term they become. We also have assembled a free information package for parents to take with them.

Our goal is to help you learn about when children should have their first dental visit, ways to prevent early childhood cavities, when to expect changes from primary to permanent teeth, proper brushing and flossing techniques, thumbsucking, dental sealants, choosing the right mouth protector for active children and adolescents, and teaching children to say no to tobacco. You will also learn about the importance of regular dental examinations.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to answering any questions you may have!
