February is Children’s Dental Health Month and Brittaney Weber from Atlanta Laser Dentistry in Lawrenceville is teaching children

to take care of their teeth. Brittaney is shown here with the Pre-K class from Kids R Kids Preschool at the corner of Lawrenceville Suwanee Road and Satellite Boulevard. The kids were very excited that the “tooth fairy” came to visit them. They were taught proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as how to take care of their teeth and bodies with proper nutrition. Every child received a “goodie bag” with items to help them care for their teeth. Children’s Dental Health Month provides an opportunity for dentists and their team members to show children and parents in the community how to care for their teeth in the proper manner. Here’s how you can help keep your children’s teeth healthy: 1) Encourage your children to eat healthy and cut down on sweets and sugary drinks. 2) Have them brush their teeth at least twice daily and floss once daily. 3) Inspect their teeth when finished to make sure they did a good job. 4) Visit your family dentist for a professional cleaning and exam twice a year. 5) Have sealants placed on your children’s permanent teeth to help prevent cavities. Most insurance companies cover all or most of the cost associated with cleanings, exams and sealants for your children. If you don’t have a family dentist, Atlanta Laser Dentistry is located at 1032 Old Peachtree RD NW, Lawrenceville in the Publix shopping center. Their phone number is 770-513-1312. Visit them on the web at www.atlantalaserdentistry.com. You can also contact the Georgia Dental Association at www.gadental.org to assist in locating a dentist near you.
