February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

To celebrate February as National Children’s Dental Health Month, we want to make sure you (parents/grandparents/caregivers) understand how kids should properly care for their teeth.

According to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should do the following:

  • Brush your teeth two times a day, preferably with a fluoride toothpaste.

  • Floss your teeth on a daily basis.

  • Eat lots of vegetables and limit sugary beverages and snacks.

  • See your family dentist or pediatric dentist on a consistent basis for prevention and treatment of oral problems.

At Shining Smiles Family Dentistry, we promote these tips for our young patients, as well as our teenage and adult patients.

Choosing a family dentist for your child

Family dentistry has somewhat of a double meaning.

It means that we can provide care for a wide range of dental issues under one roof for all of your family members, but it also means that, at Shining Smiles, we’re a family ourselves!

Some dentists have a concentration in cosmetic, restorative, etc., but they cannot provide a high level of care to most families.

Well, with the variety of dental services we offer, we can care for parents AND their kids all under one roof. In fact, once you meet Dr. Mohip-Chahwala and the rest of the team at Shining Smiles, we don’t think you’ll want to take any of your family members elsewhere.

If you choose a family dentist or a pediatric dentist for your child, he or she will explain how to keep your child’s teeth healthy and which services are available for healthy smiles.

Children’s dental services offered at our Marietta, GA office

We offer many more dental services than those listed, too! Wondering how you’ll pay for those dental services? Read on!

Do you accept my insurance? Do you offer financing?

Anyone who doesn’t think that costs come into play when selecting a dental practice doesn’t live in the real world. We do everything we can to provide the dental care you need at an affordable rate.

At Shining Smiles Family Dentistry, we will NOT recommend a procedure unless you need it. We feel this is a very important distinction and may save you thousands of dollars in the years to come as a patient of Dr. Mohip-Chahwala and Shining Smiles.

That being said, here is more information regarding insurance and financing: insurance.

If you live in or near Marietta, GA and would like to schedule an appointment for your child, call our family dentist at Shining Smiles Family Dentistry. We look forward to meeting you!
