The Benefits of a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist 

Our main goals at Little Champions Pediatric Dentistry are preventing cavities, teaching children how to brush and floss properly, and helping them develop healthy habits.

Cavities are the most common chronic disease in children, so it’s important to take steps to prevent them.

This can be done by using fluoride toothpaste, getting sealants on molars, and avoiding sugary drinks. It’s also important to teach kids how to brush correctly; they should use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and brush for two minutes twice a day.

Finally, developing healthy habits is key—this means no thumb sucking or pacifier use after age three, eating nutritious foods, and visiting us at least twice a year.

What is the main goal of Pediatric Dentistry?

The main goal of pediatric dentistry is to ensure that children have healthy teeth and mouths. This includes preventing dental problems, promoting good oral hygiene habits, and providing early intervention when necessary.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends taking your child to the dentist by his first birthday. Starting good habits young can prevent dental problems and help your child feel comfortable.

If you are the parent of a young child, it is important to take them for dental checkups at least twice a year. By partnering with Little Champions Pediatric Dentistry, you can trust that your children are getting the care they need.
