The ADA has declared February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. Taylor Dental & Braces reminds parents and children the importance of developing good oral hygiene. Regular checkups with the dentists at Taylor Dental are as important as annual wellness visits with your primary doctor.

Good oral habits include brushing twice a day especially before bedtime, flossing after every meal and brushing or scraping the tongue to remove bacteria and odors.

Helping children is the important part of what Taylor Dental does for families. They are making sure that all children have access to dental care services. Taylor Dental is committed to reducing the need for future extensive dental work & keeping kids healthy through preventative dental care & a range of community & educational programs.
