First visit to a dentist with friend – Mississauga moms and kids had a great Discovery Field trip to the dentist.
momstown Mississauga mamas and little ones had a fun time at our Discovery Field trip to City Heights Dental. There was a lot to learn! Did you know that dentists recommend that you take your baby to her first dental checkup at 12 months? Dr Rai from City Heights Dental recommends bringing your babies with you to your checkup so they are familiar with the dentist’s office. This familiarity will help when it is time for baby’s first checkup.
Dr Rai showed us how to brush baby’s teeth and gums and answered many questions about ensuring that you and your child are maintaining great oral healthcare. If you give your baby milk before bed, Dr Rai advises wiping baby’s gums and teeth with a textured cloth or giving them some water to remove the milk residue from their teeth. It is also recommend that you assist your child with brushing their teeth until they are at least 8 years old. Young children do not possess the dexterity to properly clean all of their teeth.
Our little ones had a great time playing and colouring in the waiting room. They loved wearing cool sunglasses and sitting in the big chair to get their teeth examined.We have another field trip to City Heights Dental in March so be sure to sign up. Spots are limited!
