Pediatricians and dentists recommend children to visit a dentist 6 months after the first tooth erupts. For most, that means at about one year. An easy exam is done by Dr. Geisler, a dentist in Plymouth, MN, with your son or daughter facing you. Dr. Geisler will give you help in knowing if all the teeth are developing normally. The most important part of the exam is the education for the parent about healthy eating and brushing habits. Dr. Geisler taught the toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners at Primrose what is a healthy food for our teeth and how to brush. Woof the dog and Sammy the crocodile were on hand for demonstrations. Two books were read about teeth and the tooth fairy. Every child went home with a toothcase of fun.
