February is National Children's Dental Health Month. Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. We wanted to take a moment to recognize how important it is to our team at Tamal Vista Family Dentistry to provide your child with the best possible experience when it comes to visiting our office. Kids can be nervous, especially when someone is getting up close to their face and mouth. Sometimes children detect a parent’s apprehension, which might have come from a negative experience they had as a child. Whatever the reason may be, we take special care in making every patient in our office feel calm and comfortable!


A recent article made the news this week, discussing the overuse of toothpaste, especially for younger children. Just a pea sized drop is all you need, but that is hard to do when some of the flavored toothpastes taste so good!
