Medford dentist Dr. Poorva Parnaik is passionate about dentistry and promoting health and wellness. She hosts a number of events throughout the year that focus on general health and wellness topics. This summer, she will visit a local nursery school to promote healthy dental habits to young children.
Dr. Parnaik will teach kids how to brush their teeth and the importance of eating healthy snacks for healthy teeth.
Importance of Children’s Dentistry
The oral health of children is extremely important. One of the biggest challenges facing children is tooth decay. Parents can help their children to prevent tooth decay by having healthy habits at home like brushing and flossing twice a day, limiting sugary snacks and visiting the dentist at least twice a year.
Establishing a good oral health and preventive care routine creates good habits that will carry into adulthood.
