During this busy time, many people forget about the importance of taking care of their children’s dental needs. But the start of the new school year is a great time to revamp your oral care habits and prioritize a healthy mouth. Here are three tips you can do today to get your children (and their teeth) ready for the school year.
Did you know that your baby is born with all 20 primary teeth? They’re just nestled below the gumline until your child is about 6 months old.

This can be an uncomfortable time for your baby, but there are several things you can do to help alleviate your baby’s pain.

Tightness in your jaw is not something you should ignore. In many cases, there are at-home remedies to reduce the pain and preventative mea...

The good news is, unlike your jeans, you don’t have to discard your teeth—you can restore them! Anderson & Atkins Dentistry offers a...
