Home Care Tips

Getting a smart start is the best way to prevent dental health problems such as cavities, gum diseases and even bad breath.

Preschool-aged children who experience early preventive dental visits are more likely to seek out preventive dental services and experience lower dentally-related costs. The American Dental Association now recommends all children experience their first preventive dental visit by age 1.

Follow these basic tips to maintain good oral hygiene and health between visits to Dr. Lindeman.
