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, Drs. Dimock, Weinberg, Cherry and Leone encourage you to call our office at 910-794-2266 to discuss these and other oral health care topics.
Our doctors encourage parents to 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, thumb sucking, dental sealants, choosing the right mouth protector for active children and adolescents, and teaching their children to say no to tobacco. “We encourage parents to learn about the importance of regular dental examinations,” states Dr. Weinberg.
“Children’s teeth are meant 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. Cherry.
To schedule a visit with any of doctors, please call us at 910-794-2266 or email us at [email protected]. As a reminder, we have a bilingual doctor, Dr. Leone, on staff to serve our Spanish speaking patients.
We look forward to you joining our mouth healthy dental family!
