There are many factors that go into encouraging your kids to develop healthy practices when it comes to dental health. As a premier Glendale family dentist, here at Hillside Dental Group we tell parents that one of the most important things they can do is to model good dental health themselves. Kids are always paying attention. By setting a good example, brushing and flossing daily, and making it look fun, you’re instilling good dental health habits in your children that will last a lifetime! Along with regular cleanings, checkups, and brushing and flossing, it’s one of the most important contributions you can make to your child’s dental health.
