Raising kids is tough work. As a parent, you want what’s best for them. What’s really challenging is teaching them about how things they may not like now are actually really good for them in the long run.

A good example of that is oral health. Kids rarely enjoy brushing their teeth, let alone flossing. But the more you help your kids improve their oral health at that young age, the better it will be as they grow. You’ll also save a ton of money in not treating oral health problems like cavities.

Bring them in early
To help get your kids on the right oral health track, you should bring them to a dentist when they get their first tooth or have their first birthday. After whichever event comes first, make sure to call us and schedule with Drs. Timothy Ross or Susan Chmiel for an appointment soon.

Make it fun
If you can make oral health fun for your kids, the chances of them doing great with it on their own rise exponentially. Reminding them of the rewards they get at our offices in Drs. Timothy Ross & Susan Chmiel in Franklin, Wisconsin. You can also hand out your own rewards at home to encourage good oral health. Our team has ideas for that if you need help.

Teaching kids great oral health habits is important at a young age. We’ve seen it help countless times, which is why we recommend it so highly. If you want to know more, or need an appointment, call us today at 414-525-0300.
