Children Can Begin a Lifetime of Dental Hygiene

February is Children’s Dental Health Month. Dexter Dental Studio is teaching children that valuing their own health facilitates a sense of emotional well-being. Sophia Cornish, DDS, says, “ ultimate goal is for children to feel safe and secure in our office. The first step toward that is our Hands-On Health Lab.  Children of all ages get to perform age-appropriate experiments related to health before they even sit in a dental chair. It is a unique way to engage and inspire our youngest patients as they learn about their own dental and whole-body health.”

            She explains, “The second step is when our specialized hygienists spend extra time with your child on oral care instruction. This isn’t just a traditional cleaning, but a chance for your child to be educated about their mouth and have a hands-on experience to learn proper brushing and flossing techniques that aid in better plaque and food removal. The goal is to give them confidence in their abilities to take care of themselves and to learn how a healthy mouth helps build a healthy body.”
