February is dental health awareness! Remember to see your dentist regularly every six months for cleanings and exams. Your kids by age 1 should also be seeing a dentist so they feel comfortable at a young age.
We will also be serving our area in the Give Kids a Smile Program. It is a national event that reaches out to kids who do not have the financial access to see dentists regularly. If you know of a family or would like more information please contact our office.
