Oral health is an integral part of the overall health of children.​ Each child has different skills and needs that can guide parents in helping him or her brush.As the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other children's organizations report, tooth decay (also called early childhood caries, or ECC) is the most common chronic children's disease in the country.Health care professionals know that tooth decay is a disease that is, by and large, preventable.Since pediatricians see young infants and children frequently for preventive health care visits, they are in an excellent position to identify children at risk for dental health problems, coordinate appropriate care and parent education, and refer affected and high-risk children to pediatric dentists.​Each child has different skills and needs that can guide parents in helping him or her brush.David Hill MD is here to discuss your child's dental health and give simple suggestions you can do to ensure your child's well being.
