Dental Hygiene

It is never too early to learn proper oral hygiene care.

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 the age of 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.


Dr. Joe & Dr. Matt recommend a first dentist visit within in the third year.  Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.

Preventative care: At least every 6 months

If you take proper care of your teeth and they are in good condition, you should schedule an appointment at least twice a year.


If your teeth are predisposed to problems, you should be on the safe side and make appointments for preventative care regularly.


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