Preventative Care:  At least every 6 months  

If you take special care of your teeth and they are in good condition, you should come to see us for a checkup at least twice a year.  If your teeth are predisposed to problems, you should be on the safe side and make an appointment for preventative care regularly.

 

Our tip:  Come in for a consultation and make the next appointment after each visit.

Start 'em early 

Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early.  As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime.  Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times, as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.

 

Dr. Kusnick recommends a first dentist visit somewhere in your child's third year.  Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
