As you embark on taking care of your child’s smile, there are a lot of things you will learn over the years. To get started, it’s best to gain a solid education regarding when it’s best to begin providing your child professional dental care, while becoming familiar with what those precious teeth and gums require. To see how much you’ve soaked up so far, take a quiz from your children’s dentist! Then, do yourself and your family a big favor: Call us to schedule your child’s visit, so we can begin setting some very good oral health habits into motion.

Quiz: True or False?

  1. True or False: Pedodontics is the area of dental care that specializes in protecting and guiding the oral health of your children’s smiles.
  2. True or False: Your children’s dentist suggests you bring your child in for care at a very early age. In fact, as soon as the first tooth arrives or when your child turns one year of age.
  3. True or False: Your children are vulnerable to the same oral health problems as you, such as gingivitis and decay, so consistent visits for your little ones are just as important.

Quiz Answers

  1. True. Your children’s dentist practices pedodontics, which is another way of referring to pediatric dentistry. This includes care throughout your son or daughter’s childhood.
  2. True. The moment a tooth is present, it’s time to get started on checkups and ensuring teeth and gums are kept clean.
  3. True. Your children need six-month visits just like you, beginning around the age of two or three.
