Do you want your family to have strong and healthy smiles? If so, our dentist, Dr. Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz, is happy to help you. There are things you can do to help your entire family reach those smile goals, and they’re not as tough as you might think! Those things are:

-Start your child on an oral hygiene routine when their little chompers erupt from their gums. Brush their teeth with a child toothbrush and water twice a day and floss their little teeth daily when two touch each other.

-Protect your family members’ teeth with dental sealants. These barriers can help prevent cavities.

-Use fluoride, but not too much fluoride. Fluoride strengthens the smile by nourishing the teeth. Brush with fluoride toothpaste, drink fluoridated water, and receive a fluoride treatment at our office regularly.

-Encourage everyone to brush twice a day, floss once a day, rinse daily, and visit their dentist every six months.

-Change everyone’s toothbrush every 3-4 months or once the bristles have frayed.
