A winning smile can go a long way for our kids. It can be the difference between radiating confidence or projecting self-doubt. And we all want our kids to excel and be the best they can be. That is why it’s so important for us to teach them how to properly care for their teeth, even the little baby ones that eventually fall out. Starting an oral care routine while they’re young sets them up for life and instills great habits for when they grow up. I’m preparing to take my one-year-old to her very first dentist visit and am all sorts of nervous. How will she react? How in the world is this dentist going look in her mouth if she refuses to open? Will she be traumatized? My eldest was no problem because she is super friendly and loves the attention. But my baby? Not so much. That’s why I decided to enlist the help of Houston-area Orthodontist Dr. Brad Jennings from Jennings Orthodontics. I asked him a few questions that would help me prepare for our visit and those to follow. If my girls end up with my teeth, then braces are definitely in their future. Dr. Jennings was also kind enough to list his top 10 oral care tips that the girls and I will be following today!
