Children's Dental Health Month Celebrated in February By dlmerulla on February 15, 2012

February is the time of the year that your Rockville dentist Dr. Siegel, joins with the American Dental Association to raise awareness of the importance of taking your child to the dentist for regular dental visits.  If your child does not already have an established dental relationship, Children's Dental Health Month is the perfect time to make a connection.

The dental relationship involves not only the dentist and pediatric patient, but also the parent.  Each dental hygiene check-up allows the dentist to discuss the child's dental growth and concerns with the parent.  So what kind of things could be of concern for a child's teeth?

  • Teaching the parent how to prevent cavities
  • Showing proper brushing and flossing techniques-to both parent and child!
  • Finding out if and when a child should see the orthodontist
  • Monitoring the growth of permanent teeth, and the "falling out" of baby teeth

If your child can establish the healthy habit of going to see Dr. Siegel, your Rockville area dentist, for check-ups from an early age, along with proper diet and care, then his or her teeth will translate into a lifetime of healthy smiles.
