Tupelo, MS -- Dr. John Kenney- "Your Dental Health" -- Regular Exams

Regular dental check-ups and preventative dental care such as cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants, provide your child with "smile" insurance. Plan your child's first dental visit within six months after the first tooth erupts, but no later than his or her first birthday. Consider it a "well baby check-up" for your child's teeth. During your child's first visit, your dentist will check for cavities, to see how well the teeth are being cleaned and offer suggestions if necessary, to make sure the proper number of teeth have erupted, to see if your child is receiving the proper amount of fluoride, and answer any questions you may have.
