According to the American Dental Association (ADA), prevention and early detection is the key to maintaining optimal dental health for everyone in the family. The ADA states that proper dental health can even prevent school absences
This reinforces the importance for every family member to visit a dentist at least every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning. The first step in this process is to find a dentist with whom all family members feel comfortable.
