Health Unit offers free first dental checkups for children

The Lanark, Leeds Grenville Health Unit wants you to bring your baby to the dentist by age one. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that all children see a dental health professional by their first birthday.  This helps to spot potential problems early when treatment is easier.   Baby teeth can decay quickly, and are very important for a child’s speech and nutrition. Tooth decay is the second most common childhood disease.  Seeking dental care early can prevent this problem and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles.  The Health Unit offers free first visits for all children at any of  their 6 clinic locations.  Go towww.healthunit.org/dental for more information on oral health.
