Bringing Smiles to the Bellevue Community


Symbol



Dr. Park and Dr. Hong recommend that brushing begin as early as six months, (or as soon as your child’s first tooth appears) and that they should see a dentist before their first birthday.

That may sound young, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your child’s oral health. More than 40% of kindergarten-age children suffer from tooth decay. It’s even more common than asthma or hay fever. In fact, despite being largely preventable, tooth decay is one of the most widespread chronic childhood diseases in America, and is the number 1 cause for missed time from school.

Healthy primary teeth or baby teeth is vital for proper chewing and establishing proper alignment of the adult teeth coming in correctly.

Early loss of primary/baby teeth due to decay and infection will compromise your child's bite, alignment, and formation of their adult teeth.

In addition it is never too early to have your child get familiar and comfortable visiting our Bellevue dental office.

Not sure how to care for your child’s teeth? Stop by our office and ask. We’re happy to help guide you on the day-to-day care for their age. Introducing them to proper oral health early will help them form good habits, get them accustomed to daily oral care and regular dental visits, and give them a healthier smile that will last a lifetime.
