February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. If you have a baby or toddler, you may have questions about thumb sucking, your child’s first dental visit or how and when to clean your child’s teeth. If so, Children’s Dental Village invites you to visit our booth at The Mom’s Marketplace that will be held on February 18th from 9am to 1pm at Kiwanis Park, Tempe.
During the event, parents can learn about when children should have their first dental visit, ways to prevent early childhood caries, when to expect changes from primary to permanent teeth, proper brushing and flossing techniques, thumbsucking, dental sealants, and choosing the right mouth protector for active children and adolescents. Parents will also learn about the importance of regular dental examinations.
“Good dental habits should start early in order to last a lifetime and a healthy smile is important to a child’s self-esteem. With proper care, a balanced diet and regular dental visits, their teeth can remain healthy and strong, said Dr. Mercedes Padilla.
Stop by the Children’s Dental Village Booth on February 18th from 9am to 1pm at Kiwanis Park.
