Taking care of your children’s teeth is very important for their dental future.  Finding a pediatric dentist dental home by the age of 1 allows for teaching about brushing, fluoride, diet, and bottle feeding/nursing to help prevent cavities. If you need help finding a Dentist, speak with your child’s pediatrician for recommendations.

Here is a link to the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry).  Go here to find a pediatric dentist in your area.  Their pediatric resource FAQ and parent education brochures have great information: http://www.aapd.org/resources/parent_resources/
