Your Child Deserves a Smart Smile

Don't Let Your Child Be A Statistic

 

Over half of children in Arizona have cavities by kindergarten. Children that miss dental checkups are more likely to have cavities. Children should see a pediatric dentist by age 1.

Tooth Decay Spreads Easily

 

Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. A study has shown Arizona children will have at least 3 cavities by age 5 because tooth decay spreads easily if not treated.

Cavities Can Lower Grades

 

Children who reported having recent tooth pain from cavities were 4 times more likely to have a low grade point average than their cavity-free classmates.

A Pediatric Dentist Can Help

 

Pediatric Dentists are Pediatricians for the Mouth

They receive special training in growth, development, and psychological well-being as well as treating cavities in children.  

Tooth Pain Causes School Absences

 

A 2011 study showed that children with cavities were more likely to miss school due to tooth pain and have lower grades.

Baby Teeth Matter

 

Untreated tooth decay in baby teeth can cause permanent damage to adult teeth. Baby teeth are important for speech 

development and eating a healthy diet.
