You\u2019ve heard it said time and again, \u201cvisit your dentist twice a year for a check-up and a cleaning,\u201d but how important is it for your child to come and visit us at least twice every year? Very, and here\u2019s why!Learn Better Oral Health HabitsRegular visits to their pediatric dentist get kids in the habit of taking care of their teeth. At Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to teaching every child that comes through our doors how to best care for their teeth.Not only do we teach our young patients how to properly brush and floss their teeth, but we also make sure to inform parents of the best ways they can help in securing a bright, happy smile for their children throughout their childhood! We also assist parents in making informed decisions about their child\u2019s oral health, from getting dental sealants to buying the right kind of fluoridated toothpaste!We are passionate about creating a fun, comfortable environment in which we can build strong relationships with our patients, teach them how to care for their teeth, and help parents become partners in their child\u2019s dental health!Maintain Good Oral Health Habits Into AdulthoodStudies show kids who visit their pediatric dentist twice per year continue seeing a dentist in adulthood. Teaching your child that it is normal to visit the dentist twice a year for a check-up and cleaning sets the stage for better oral health habits when they are adults!Children – and adults – who visit the dentist regularly and follow good oral health habits are less likely to develop cavities, gum disease, or other preventable dental issues.Take Advantage of Your Dental Care CoverageLike they do for adults, most insurance plans will cover two annual visits for free for your children, so there is no reason not to take advantage of this benefit!
