Oral Health & Wellness for your Baby

Your baby’s first tooth is an exciting milestone and forming good habits now will set the stage for a lifetime of strong, healthy teeth.
 
Most parents primarily think of brushing and flossing when they hear the words “oral care”. However, good preventive care starts even before your baby’s first tooth erupts and includes many factors such as:
– Diet
– Oral habits
– Hygiene
 
In this interactive workshop, Dr. Jason Gomes will discuss and demonstrate ways to support you in caring for your babies gums and teeth, including:
– recognizing early signs of teeth
– understanding when and how baby teeth emerge
– identifying natural remedies to ease teething discomfort
– establishing good home care before & after teeth
 
*This is a baby friendly workshop
 
All participates will receive a complimentary at home care kit including: tooth & gum cleaner, fluoride-free infant toothpaste and an Oral B® Pro-Health Stages Disney Baby Winnie the Pooh Toothbrush.
