Helping Children Maintain Oral Health

added on: December 3, 2014

If you have children, you know how difficult it can be to instill in them optimal dental habits. That’s why the American Dental Association has enlisted the help of Hermey the Elf from the beloved Christmas TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to help educate children while remaining playful and fun.

Hermey’s Healthy Teeth Checklist along with a number of other activities are available for download from the ADA’s website. These resources can prove invaluable when working with children to help develop oral health habits that will last a lifetime.

Cedar Rapids family dentist Dr. Blaine McLaughlin offers dentistry services designed specifically to meet the needs of children. From general cleanings to fluoride treatments and sealants, our children’s dentistry services are an important for helping the smallest members of your household maintain peak oral health. These early childhood visits also help kids become comfortable with dental services – a benefit that will prove useful at every stage of their oral development.
