Cavities and Dental Disease Are Preventable!​

Early childhood caries (ECC) begins with the transmission of cariogenic bacteria from the caregiver to the child. Without intervention, caries will negatively impact the child’s oral and overall health.

Children are seen by their pediatrician before they are seen by their dentist. Their oral health care plan begins with you!

Studies show that applying fluoride varnish decreases caries by 30-35%.

AAP Recommends Fluoride Varnish for Every Child Under 6.*

The progression of existing decay can be stopped with silver diamine fluoride (SDF).

One-time application can arrest lesions up to 90%1
