Let’s Learn From Our Kids

Grand Rapids MI Pediatric DentistAt Advance Dental Smile, we value families. We are a family too! Dr. Richard Neuman and Dr. Alexis Neuman are a dynamic father-daughter team as well. We love kids, our kids and your kids! We offer pediatric dental care, and love seeing the little ones enter our office. Each one is so unique and fun!

We can learn so much from them. Their approach to life is easy to envy. Their total abandon, zest for life, and ability to turn a blind eye to a mess are some of the gifts of childhood. What if we approached our dental care a bit like children do?

To prevent gum disease and the buildup of plaque, there are a few important dental habits that will help you. Let’s review a few of these daily habits and see if we could approach them as a child would.

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. Perhaps you could adopt this habit and approach it like a child by playing your music loudly and dancing around the bathroom.
  2. Floss your teeth once per day. What if you flossed like a cowboy? After completing your flossing, twirl it around you head like a lasso and aim for the trashcan.
  3. Eat a healthy diet. Gobble up a whole bowl of strawberries all to yourself. Let the red juices run down your chin, and upon completion declare yourself the super eater of your household.

At Advance Dental Care, we celebrate each kid that comes in for a pediatric dentist appointment. Book your entire family’s appointment with us today. We’ll look forward to seeing you soon.
