Dental Caries is the most common chronic disease of children.
Nearly 50% of all children will have at least one cavity by the age of 5, and it is 5 times more common than asthma.
This disease can be PREVENTED by establishing a DENTAL HOME for your child at the age of ONE!
By making Pediatric Dentistry @ Westport Dental Associates your child's Dental Home, oral health care will be delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated and family-centered way.
Being part of a Dental Home enhances Dr. Rachel's ability to assist children and their parents in the quest for optimum oral health care, beginning with the age one dental visit.
Research increasingly shows that children who visit the dentist early in life (before their 1st Birthday) are more likely to return for regular cleanings and less likely to return for fillings.
If the right preventive program is established for your child, he/she can have higher chance of experiencing a cavity free childhood that will lead to good habits and oral health into their adulthood.
Age one visits are imperative to a long lasting smile.
