Your child’s smartphone or tablet could be another vital tool to help them establish effective dental hygiene habits. A mobile app called Toothsavers was introduced in 2014 by a coalition of organizations dedicated to public health.
Did you know that The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first visit to a dentist should occur around twelve months of age?
For many parents in the San Marcos CA, Escondido, and Oceanside area, this may come as a surprise. Today in the La Costa Dental Excellence post, we are going to review 4 reasons why your toddler’s teeth are worth a dental visit.
Most Oceanside people probably know how a pediatric dentist differs from an orthodontist. Some Escondido dental patients may even know the unique focus of endodontists. But few California residents probably know that the American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties. Today’s post looks at the specific disciplines within the fascinating world of dentistry and the years in which they were formally recognized by the ADA. (If you want a challenge, see if you can name all nine before you continue reading this post.)
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we focus on preventative dentistry for Encinitas families. We believe that today’s California children can enjoy healthy teeth for life.
