Why is Preventive Dentistry Important? 

Preventative dentistry means healthy smile for your child. Children with healthy mouths chew better and gain more nutrients from their foods; learn to speak more clearly and quickly; better general health as oral infection can endanger the rest of the body.

A healthy mouth is more attractive giving children confidence in their appearance.

In the long term, preventative dentistry means less extensive and less expensive treatment for your child.

Parental Role

After evaluating your child’s health, we will design a personalized home care program which will include brushing and flossing techniques, diet counseling ad if necessary, fluoride recommendations.
