Corning Children’s Dentist: Schooling Your Kids in Dental Hygiene
It’s summer again, the perfect season for those long awaited family outings, beach parties and just chilling at some fun outdoor activity. However, while you and your kids may be having a great time at these events, probably munching a few sugary goodies, this may also be the best time to give your kids a few insights into the world of proper dental hygiene. The National Children’s Oral Health Foundation reports that the most commonly known chronic childhood disease is tooth decay. The statistics indicate that more than 25 percent of children, aged two to five years old, are diagnosed with at least one decayed tooth. Now that schools are out for the summer holidays, it is crucial as a responsible parent to reinforce with your kids to keep up or improve their dental hygiene routine.
