How Coming to Our Office Can Set a Good Family Example
Posted on 2/20/2020 by Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry
As parents, it's our responsibility to set a healthy example for good oral hygiene. This includes doing things like brushing and flossing alongside children, and explaining things like proper technique and the value of regularly cleaning your teeth.
Coming to a dental office like ours regularly is another way to set a good example for our children to follow along with though.
Teaching them young that a good dentist is a valuable resource and that professional dental cleaning are an everyday part of life establishes good habits, helps with maintaining good oral health and will have benefits all throughout life. We are here to help you set that example to your entire family.
Visiting Us Regularly Encourages Children to do the Same in Adulthood
Good oral hygiene is the most important way to preserve the health of your teeth over time, but coming to visit a professional dentist and dental hygienist, like those in our office regularly, is the next most important thing that you can do.
By taking children to see their pediatric dentist regularly, and showing that you visit our office yourself as well, you're making it clear that visiting a dentist is important to do and something that should be done throughout life. Even if you never get any significant work done, just having regular cleanings at our dental office is key to making sure your little ones know how to preserve the health of your teeth.
If you haven't visited our office recently, we would love to hear from you today. Give us a call and come in to see us. Setting up a regular cleaning and dental maintenance routine is the first step toward good oral health and toward establishing healthy habits for your children as well. Take this step for your family and they'll always remember those visits later in life when they're deciding how to live their own lives and how to care for themselves and their families. Let us know if there is anything more we can do to help!
