Why Is Dental Education Important?

The fundamentals of dental health are important to maintain good oral health. When your children learn to brush their teeth at a young age, they are developing routines and skills for life.

Without proper brushing, flossing, and routine visits to the dentist, kids are likely to develop cavities and tooth decay.

Poor oral health can lead to serious health problems later in life including cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory infections, and diabetes.
