Dentists traveling to local schools for Dental Health Month

Posted: Updated:


As part of National Children's Dental Health Month, some students are being given the opportunity to be screened for cavities and other dental issues before they turn into serious health problems.
     
Doctor Ian Leopold from SLO Smiles was on hand at Bishop's Peak Elementary School in San Luis Obispo Thursday morning. 
  
He recommends parents schedule their child's first dental appointment by age 1. 

"Children's teeth are meant to last a lifetime," Dr. Leopold said in a press release. "With proper brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits, their teeth can remain healthy and strong. It's important that we catch any dental issues early and instill good habits from the start."

For more information on the Dental Health Screening Program, call the Central Coast Dental Society at (805) 544-1113.
