In September Dr Choo and I had the wonderful opportunity to teach some very eager and energetic kids! Boy was this a handful! We had some very informed and inquisitive children who were attentive and happy to participate. It is good to hear of good oral hygiene habits from such young people!

Now it’s Dr Ip’s turn!
It is important to start brushing once the first baby teeth come out! Children’s toothpaste comes in specific formulas and can be used from as young as 2 years of age. Importantly, it is important to bring your kids to the dentist! Good habits can be formed and it gives your children time to get accustomed to the sights and sounds of a dental clinic! More importantly any early developmental issues can be detected and intervention may be possible early, preventing significant side-effects in the future.
It was entertaining for everyone and we hope we get the opportunity to teach some more kiddies in the future! For preschool enquiries, please visit https://www.imaginationspreschool.com.au/
