NFW2014 VerticalDental Workshop Tomorrow! (October 8) Our local Community Health Dental Team will be visiting both drop-in sessions. They will be available to take a look at your child's teeth and answer any questions you might have about oral hygiene.

Why is caring for these little baby teeth so important? Here is an answer from Vancouver Coastal Health's Dental Program website: "Healthy baby teeth will help your baby eat foods, learn to talk, smile and feel good about themselves as well as hold spaces for the adult teeth.  It is easy for babies and children to get tooth decay so parents need to do daily mouth care for their babies right from the start.  Your baby's teeth are already forming before he or she is even born."

You can find answers to more dental health questions here!
