February is Children’s Dental Health Month and we love to support our patients who are parents to young children. Parenting is a tough job, and being responsible for your child’s dental hygiene can be intimidating! Especially if your child is not willing to comply with the routine you are trying to set. We are here to help! Ideally, we love to see your child before their first birthday. We will show you techniques on how to floss and brush effectively, and allow your child to sit in the chair and see all the cool technology in our office. When it is time for your child’s first dental cleaning, we will allow extra time for the appointment. We will not want to rush or cause any fears. It is helpful for you, the parent, to talk to your child in a positive way about Dr. Petrusha and Dr. Selasky being their friend and that we are here to help their teeth to be strong and healthy. If your child is relaxed and happier, the appointment will go better for the child and the parent!
