Eagle River's Favorite Dentist Is Creating a Generation That Enjoys Dental Care, Anchorage, Alaska

Achieving a bright, healthy smile doesn’t happen overnight—it’s a lifelong commitment. While some children worry about their biannual visit to the dentist, Discovery Dental in Eagle River, AK, encourages kids to embrace oral health from an early age. Their mission statement, “Creating a generation that enjoys dental care,” is about instilling the importance of preventative dentistry into the minds of their young patients. Every child should understand the importance of dental care, and Discovery Dental makes taking care of their teeth fun and easy.

Importance Of Dental Care For Kids

dentistYour child’s baby teeth may be destined for the underside of their pillow, but they’re worth more than whatever prize the tooth fairy leaves behind. Baby teeth are the foundation to permanent teeth. The dental care kids receive during the first two years of their life directly impacts their oral health once their permanent teeth come in. Children that develop cavities in their primary teeth are also likely to develop cavities in their permanent teeth, even if their dental hygiene improves.

Learning To Love Dental Care

Teaching your children the importance of dental care isn’t always an easy task. Why eat an apple when they could have a candy bar, and why take the time to brush their teeth at night when they could be playing? The key to encouraging your child to take part in oral hygiene is making it enjoyable. Motivate them with a rewards chart or let them pick out a fun character-themed toothbrush. You can also play music during teeth brushing time and involve your child in preparing healthy snacks.
