An Oral Health Message from Dr. Max:

Hi this is Dr. Max,

If you are the parent of an infant, it is very impoprtant to start taking care of your baby’s teeth right away! You can begin by using an infant tooth brush and water. It’s very important to make sure plaque never has a chance to develop on your child’s teeth, no matter how young they are! 

As they continue to grow, use a small soft bristled tooth brush and a pea-sized dab of fluoride toothpaste.  Encourage your child to spit out any excess toothpaste left after brushing, not swallow it.

Thank you for visitng our site... we hope to see you in the office soon!
