What a proud and exciting moment for Sweetpea Smiles! Our very own Dr. Nasha Hunter, a certified pediatric dentist, recently appeared on the TV show, “Houston Life” to talk about children’s dental health. There were many takeaways from the episode, especially the importance of caring for your young child’s teeth and making regular visits to a Pediatric Dentist.
Dr. Hunter discussed the importance of seeing a dentist by your child’s first birthday and brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they erupt. By doing this she said, you will be setting the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles. She further stressed the importance of an appropriately sized toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste, mentioning that electric toothbrushes such as the Oral-B Genius and the Philips Sonicare for kids are great options.
Dr. Hunter explained that pediatric dentists have specialized training beyond dental school, giving them the ability to effectively manage your child’s dental health. SweetPea Smiles, the clinic where Dr. Hunter works, was described as a unique environment that kids actually enjoy visiting because of it’s welcoming and fun design. Sweetpea Smiles is nothing like a traditional dental office, as it was created specifically to be kid-friendly with fun paintings, a lively waiting room, interactive toys and fun activities.
