What is Preventive Dental Hygiene?

Regular dental visits at Richmond Hill Kids Dentistry and Orthodontics, combined with a good oral health care routine at home, are important parts of preventive dental hygiene.

Preventive hygiene practices can help your child prevent any dental issues from developing and keep their smile healthy today and into adulthood. Regular dental visits allow our pediatric dentists to address any early concerns and educate parents in proper maintenance of oral health and development.
