My kids oddly love going to the dentist. We started them both around 1 year, mostly because they got their teeth really early. Each of my boys had 16 of their 20 baby teeth by the time they were 13 months old! That said, we know that sometimes, visiting the dentist can be scary for kiddos - and let's be real: there are adults who still don't like it!
February is Pediatric Dental Health month and to make sure that your kids are set up for a lifetime of gorgeous, healthy teeth, our friends at Carolina Kids Dentistry have shared some tips to make your visits to the dentist easier and less stressful. Carolina Kids Dentistry offers free Infant Oral Health exams to children 14 months of age and younger and with a brand new Waxhaw location, there's no reason to wait!
