Questions to ask your dentist

Your dentist is an excellent resource and your partner in maintaining your family’s dental health.

Schedule regular dental exams for your children, even before they reach their first birthday. Your dentist will work to recommend a specific program of brushing, flossing and other preventive measures to teach to your children. When added to regular dental visits and a balanced diet, this will give your child a lifetime of healthy habits.
