Kids’ Cavity-Free Zone

A world without cavities begins with a Kids’ Cavity-Free Zone–a zone where educating children and parents alike is paramount to stress the need for an optimal diet, airway, oral microbiome, and oral hygiene routine to prevent tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

A quality diet is foundational to achieving optimal oral health. Providing your body with all the necessary nutrients and vitamins can make your teeth stronger and more resistant to cavities and other dental infections.

Importance of the First Dental Visit

Importance of the First Dental Visit

The importance of a child’s first dental visit cannot be ignored for good reason. A child’s first dental visit sets the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, a child’s first dental appointment should occur by the age of 1, or within 6 months of the first tooth eruption. Doctor Staci loves to see even younger babies, as she can assess functional issues early, like Tethered Oral Tissues, asymmetries, and growth and development concerns.

Reversing and Arresting Tooth Decay

In some cases, reversing and arresting tooth decay is possible through remineralization.
