The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that as soon as a child reaches one year old, he should be acquainted already with his dentist. They advocate that early detection is important to maintain oral health, to pave the way to convert bad habits to good, and to treat all cases as necessary and as simple as can be.

Auburn Dentists say: It’s also Mom and Dad’s Job
Our Auburn dentists have the skills and qualifications to manage and treat children’s oral problems – teeth, gums, and the entire oral cavity – throughout their developmental years. We take pains to assure and educate our patients’ parents and guardians.
It is essential that information about their charges’ special needs are understood and managed. We give programs for basic oral hygiene, caries and gum assessment, preventive advice for injuries to the teeth and mouth, proper diet, and information on growth and development.
Hence, it is also the parents’ responsibility to build the proper foundation for their child’s oral care. Choosing Auburn Avenue Dental is just that good start.
