In recent years, dentists have really stepped up oral health education. Blogs, pamphlets, and magazine articles have given curious patients a terrific amount of information to digest. That said, we could always do better. At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, one of our goals is to provide oral health and dental education to everyone within reach. Our blog serves as a great venue for this education. Today we felt compelled to provide a condensed guide to all things oral health. If you have questions, feel free to contact us any time electronically or call us at (904)285-7711.

We are here today to talk about the importance of establishing a positive relationship between your child and their dentist at an early age. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the recommended age that a child should first see a dentist is before their first birthday. We like to recommend that our patients bring their children to the dentist when their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday—whichever comes first. At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, we are committed to our patients and want them to feel as comfortable as possible, no matter how young they are. We are also dedicated to educating our patients on some of the most important topics related to the field of dentistry. One way that we continually educate our patients is with our blog. Today, we are going to answer some frequently asked questions about children’s oral health and also provide some tips on supporting your child during their dental appointments. We hope that you find this blog entry useful and informative. If you still have unanswered questions, however, please feel free to contact us at any time electronically or call (904)285-7711.

Did your dentist is hygienist teach you how to brush and floss? If you are like the majority of Americans, the answer is probably no. Brushing and flossing techniques, if learned by instruction at all have traditionally been passed down from parents or caregivers. The problem is that most people have been taught incorrectly. At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, we strive to educate all within reach about oral health issues. As a result, we routinely post educational blog topics. Feel free to read more in our past blogs!
