How to instill Healthy Dental habits for your kidsFrom a very young age, my parents wanted to instill the importance of self care.

When I was growing up, I did not mind going to the dentist. In fact, I LOVED it! What’s not to love about missing school, seeing the awesome fish tank, and getting a cool prize to take home? #winning

We went faithfully for our yearly well checks, and every 6 months we went to the dentist to have our teeth cleaned. I was so thankful for the precedent they set, so when I became a parent myself, I followed suit. 

I truly believe that those early medical and oral health visits are vital to building a good foundation for a lifetime of physical, mental, and dental health.

So in my search for a pediatric dentist, it was very important to me that my children have a good experience. I did not want them to fear or dread going to dental visits.

FINDING THE PERFECT PEDIATRIC DENTIST FOR YOUR KIDS

Being new to the Gulf Coast last year, we went through the process of finding all new health care providers. I read through several Google reviews and asked mom friends for recommendations. Finally, we landed at South Mississippi Smiles in Pascagoula, and we could not be happier!

While getting their teeth cleaned, my kids watched TV. After, they were given a really cool balloon to take home!

POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR PARENTS AND KIDS

I was able to go back with them for their cleaning, which helped us all to feel at ease. Parental involvement was welcomed and even encouraged, which I truly appreciated. 

Be sure to take your kiddos to all of those healthcare visits, establish healthy dental habits and smile—knowing you are setting your child on the path of good health!
