Another Feb celebration that we are excited about is National Children’s Dental Health Month. According to an American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) survey, only one in four parents are taking their child to the dentist by their first birthday. Leading health experts recommend parents should bring their One year child to the dentist to reduce the risk of dental diseases.
Delaying children’s oral health care routines can lead to cavities. Untreated children’s tooth decay may result in compromised health, development and quality of life. However, tooth decay is preventable. Scheduling your child’s first dental by their first birthday increases their ability to fight off dental diseases before their first tooth appears.
