Along with preventive dental care and guidance of facial development, we specialize in providing the best oral healthcare to infants and children through adolescence and adulthood (to 21 years of age). This includes children with special needs.
We believe that oral health is vital to total body health and encourage parents to begin preventive dental visits by a child’s first birthday.
In recognition of National Children’s Dental Health Month our Dental Hygienist Toni and Dental Assistant Ashley recently visited local schools to provide dental education, resources and dental goody bags to help children learn more about the importance of good oral hygiene at home.
“Dr. Edmonstone’s dental hygienist and dental assistant put on a wonderful dental health program for the Early Childhood students at Goodwin School. The presentation was excellent! It was age appropriate and included all the children. We were so pleased at how the children were included in the presentation by participating in games and dress-up activities that introduced what going to the dentist might be like. It helped to ease any anxiety about going to the dentist. Everyone learned a lot about how to keep their teeth healthy. Many thanks.” -Joan
