Getting Started: Dental Health for Children

Video: Pediatric Tips for New Parents

Healthy teeth are important to every child's overall wellbeing and health.

From the time a child is born, there are things that parents and care givers can do to promote healthy teeth.

For babies, teeth should be cleaned with a soft, clean cloth or a baby's toothbrush. Putting the baby to bed with a bottle should be avoided at all times.

A baby's teeth should be checked regularly for spots and any kind of staining.

Habits: The Good Kind

Forming the "right" oral health habits at a young age will help children have healthy teeth for life:


  • Brush teeth with fluoride toothpaste
  • Limit sweet drinks and snacks; provide healthy foods instead
  • Low-fat milk and dairy products high in calcium are healthy
  • Schedule regular dental check-ups, beginning at age 1
