Did you know that the month of February is National Children's Dental Health Month.

Although Dr. Cameron Jolley is an orthodontist, he still likes to stress the importance of good oral hygiene because a beautiful smile begins with healthy teeth. Parents - it is important that you teach your 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 because some children benefit from early treatment.

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!
