  • Ask your pediatric dentist to help you assess your child’s diet.

  • Shop smart!  Try not to stock your pantry with sugary or starchy snacks.

  • Brush effectively twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

  • Be careful your child does not swallow toothpaste after brushing.  Too much fluoride can cause a condition called enamel fluorosis.

  • Limit the number of snacks; choose nutritious snacks.
