One of my favorite things about being a pediatric dentist, besides having fun with kids everyday, is working with whole families to build healthy habits at home while the children are still young. I especially love working with really young kids. I believe that we need to teach them the importance of having a healthy diet and good oral hygiene habits from early in life to help prepare them for a lifetime of great oral health and great physical health too. Children are so impressionable, so it’s important to get them started on the right foot and get them excited about dentistry when they are young. That’s our goal: to teach kids the importance of being healthy, starting with their mouth, and to have fun while we do it.
