February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health month highlights the importance of early good dental habits.  Teeth can be gently brushed as soon as they appear in an infant’s or toddler’s mouth.  Our office is now offering fluoride varnish application for young children at ages 12, 18, 24 and 30 months at the well child visit.  This is a covered service by most insurance companies but feel free to call your insurance before your child’s appointment to confirm this.  For more information about childrens dental health visit the NIH website https://www.nidcr.nih.gov/NewsAndFeatures/Announcements/ChildrensDentalHealthMonth.htm
