New Site for Parent's and Caregivers on How To Take Care of Children's Teeth

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), the recognized leader in children's oral health, announced the launch of its new consumer-based wesbite www.mychildrensteeth.org. A comprehensive resource for parents and caregivers, MyChildrensTeeth.org gathers together all of the AAPD's articles and information that are useful to the general public in one convenient place.

Although North Palm Beach Dentistry is not a pediatric dental practice, we are a FAMILY practice. We believe in good oral care for everyone, especially children and hope that by sharing this information with you will help you provide better oral care at home.

Some of the parents' most frequently asked questions of pediatric dentists are answered on the site, including:

When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check up?

What should I use to clean my baby's teeth?

How do dental sealants work?

How safe are dental X-rays?
