  1. Thanks Daya! We are glad you enjoyed it! We start seeing children around 18 months old for their first dental visit if you are interested!

  2. These are some really great tips. The video was very helpful because brushing their teeth gets kind of messy and doing it twice a day like you said is very important. Am trying to cut out the juice and plan on taking them for a checkup very soon. Thanks
