Brush, Rinse, Floss, Repeat
With growing teeth and potential for cavities (it’s no secret most kids love to eat sweets!), making sure your kiddo’s dental health is up to date is undeniably essential. Most experts recommend taking your child to the dentist within six months of their first tooth. Don’t worry, mamas, we’ve got you covered with the best dental clinics to maintain healthy pearly whites for the whole family! We’ve also rounded up a list of paediatric dental clinics as well as orthodontists (the ideal age to take your child for evaluation is at first sign of an orthodontic problem or after the age of 7, according to experts).
