Happy World Oral Health Day!

This year we are celebrating the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene and being proud of your smile at every age.

Be proud of your smile at every age


Are you a parent or caregiver of a young child? It's important to start good dental hygiene habits early.

Here are some tips to care for your child's teeth:

  • Start early - begin cleaning your child's gums with a soft, damp cloth as soon as they are born. As teeth start to come in, switch to a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Brush twice a day - help your child brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day. Use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste and make sure they spit it out and don't swallow it.
  • Visit the dentist - schedule your child's first dental appointment around their first birthday, or as soon as their first tooth comes through.
  • Limit sugary drinks and snacks - sugary foods and drinks can cause cavities. Encourage your child to eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Remember, teaching good dental hygiene habits early on can set your child up for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums!
