How many questions do your children ask you every day? A lot? How many questions do they ask you about their oral health and smile care? If they aren’t usually very vocal about their smiles with you (or they become a bit shy with us during dental checkups), we advise you to encourage them to ask their questions. It’s a good habit to form, so they are always confident about caring for their teeth and gums and asking for help when they need it!
