A Great New Resource for Parents, By Katalina Ramirez, DDS, MS

Have you ever meant to ask your child’s dentist a question, but then forgotten about it? Have you needed advice on oral hygiene issues at night or on a weekend, when the dental office is closed? The cavity rate in pediatric dental patients has been on the rise in recent years, due in part to the fact that parents often lack information on how to protect their children’s teeth.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) has launched a new website to provide parents with up-to-date information on dental health and hygiene. The site, mychildrenshealth.org, includes brochures, news and analysis, and a ‘find a dentist’ tool. Parents with concerns about everything from tooth-friendly snacks to proper brushing techniques can find expert advice on this user-friendly site.

While dentists are happy to answer questions in person, the AAPD’s new site will help improve the flow of information and help protect children’s teeth.
