Cavities are 100% preventable. Every child needs healthy teeth to help them smile, speak clearly, chew their foods, be pain free, and make room for adult teeth. This program is designed to help parents/caregivers learn the information they need to take care of their child’s oral health. There is an emphasis on nutrition, home care, the disease process, cavity prevention, injury prevention, and treatment in a dental home. Infants and toddlers up to 48-months-old get an oral evaluation by a provider, a dental cleaning, a fluoride treatment, and a fluoride prescription, if appropriate. Participants will be engaging in an interactive group activity. The activity changes at every visit, which include topics such as, nutrition, tooth development, care of a child’s teeth, early childhood caries, and dental care in and out of an office. This group environment is to help families establish healthy, life-long oral health habits and nutritional eating habits. A complimentary healthy snack is provided to all participants, and toys are readily available for play. Families get the opportunity to share experiences, gain support from others, and provide comfort to help ease a child’s fear of coming to the dental clinic.
