Advice from a Kids Dentist in McLean

Your little ones learn everything from you – all their good habits are a reflection of your good habit. I always think we re-live our life through our children. They learn their first worlds and first step from you.

We shape our children’s future in every aspect. One of the most important thing we owe to them is their good health and how to stay healthy.

Good oral health is a habit learned in early ages. You want your baby to watch you and try to mimic you when you are brushing. They look up to you and try to do everything you do. Let’s make an effort in creating a good role model for our little one. You and your little ones brush time should be a fun activity time to start and end the day with. You could name it as “me and my Daddy/ Mommy bubble making time.” Be creative in how to present the importance of good oral hygiene to them. The point is their brain is like a sponge and they love to copy you, so take advantage of their curious mind! To many happy healthy years.
