How Less Sugar Helps Little Smiles
The items we eat and drink can have a major effect on the health of your child’s smile.

In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will explain how to protect little smiles with a better diet.
Children Also Need To Floss
Last week we did a reminder post on proper brushing for kids of all ages. Now, we would like to take a look at an even more important oral hygiene habit: flossing! Children need to begin flossing at an early age, and keep this habit up, in order to avoid issues like cavities or even gum inflammation. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will discuss proper flossing methods.
