Did you know that dental health has an entire month dedicated to it? The month of February is National Children's Dental Health Month.

Although Dr. Jolley is an orthodontist, he still would like to stress the importance of good oral hygiene. A beautiful smile begins with the health of your teeth. It is important that parents teach their children how to take good care of their teeth from an early age.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children see a dentist by age 1 or when their first teeth come in and then every 6 months after that. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist by age 7 to get an exam.

Have a 7 year old or a child over age 7 that has not seen an orthodontist? Call us today to schedule a complimentary exam with us at Jolley Orthodontics!
