Dental Health: Babies and Preschool

Start early to keep your child cavity free!  Your child could be cavity free for life with good dental care and nutrition. It is important to keep your child’s mouth clean before teeth have come into the mouth and to keep good dental care habits once the teeth have come in.  These habits that you form now can stay with your child for the rest of their life.

Did you know that the Canadian Pediatric Society, Canadian Dental Association, and Ontario Dental Association all recommend that children have their first dental visit by 12 months of age?

This section links you to dental information for babies and children aged 3 years and younger.  These dental health tips are meant for information only and do not replace the professional care and advice by your dentist.  If you have a question or concern about your dental health, please talk to your dentist.
