February: National Children’s Dental Health Month

February 7, 2017 Monthly Awareness, New Patients, Our Practice 0

The Richardson dentist you can trust, Fluellen Family Dentistry, wants to help educate their patients about National Children’s Dental Health Awareness month. Every February, the American Dental Association’s goal is to educate parents and their children about the importance of proper dental hygiene habits. The earlier your children get in the habit of taking care of their teeth, the easier it is to keep their smiles healthy long term.

Fluellen Family Dentistry, your Richardson, TX dentist, is dedicated to helping your family understand the importance of good dental health habits! When you bring your children in for their dental exam and cleaning, our staff shows them how to care for their teeth. We teach them how to brush their teeth and floss properly, while also teaching them how using mouthwash helps get rid of bacteria and germs in their mouth.

You can help your children maintain great oral habits at home by making sure they always:

  • Brush for 2 minutes
  • Brush twice daily
  • Floss daily
  • Limit their sugar intake
  • Make sure they eat healthy foods
  • Make sure they are drinking plenty of water

To schedule an appointment, contact Fluellen Family Dentistry today at 972-231-8241! We are always dedicated to both you and your children’s dental health!
