It can sometimes be tough to tell when your child is ready to do something on their own, rather than with your direct help. It can also be hard to trust that they know exactly what to do once they begin doing something themselves. Our Seattle, WA dentist's office has helped many families manage their oral health needs. Part of that support includes providing kids with pediatric dental exams. Between visits, your child will initially have their teeth carefully cleaned by you, but they will reach an age where they should handle brushing and flossing themselves. While it is good to let them do more for themselves, take care to determine if they are truly ready, and be with them to help them pick up good habits! Read more

Protecting your child from harm means keeping them safe, and keeping them healthy. If you want to make sure that they keep healthy, attractive teeth, it is important to help them understand the importance of dental care at an early age. Fortunately, this is an aspect of child care where you have an important ally - during every pediatric dental evaluation, your dentist can provide guidance in addition to traditional preventive care. That means that during an appointment, your child can be instructed on how to practice effective care at home, and they can learn what might happen if their teeth are not healthy. In between appointments, you can help them further protect their teeth with effective support. Read more
