Did you know that August 22, 2021 marks National Tooth Fairy Day? In honor of this fun observance, we thought it was only fitting to talk about our patients who she visits. The children who come to Crown Dental often begin their oral health journey even before their first tooth comes in.
According to The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), children should see the dentist by the time they turn 1 year old or after their first tooth erupts, which often occurs around six months.
Good oral hygiene habits, supported by regularly scheduled cleanings, will help keep the Tooth Fairy’s visits in check, ensuring your child’s smile stays strong and healthy.Read more “The Tooth Fairy is Coming to Town!”
