Anderson, SC (PRWEB) August 10, 2012
Anderson Pediatric Dentistry, a licensed pediatric dental practice in Anderson, South Carolina, recently encouraged parents to make dental exams a regular part of their children's back-to-school routine. The professionals at Anderson Pediatric Dentistry believe that many parents are unaware that tooth decay is a bacterial disease and how important it is to include a dental assessment as part of their routine health care to ensure that children are as healthy as possible when they return to school.
"Children with preventable or untreated health and development problems may have trouble concentrating and learning," says Alycia Rodgers, M.D., a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics. "When a child has serious tooth decay, it can affect overall health and can lead to problems in eating, speaking and paying attention in class."
With the start of a new school year, Dr. Monn's schedule is filling up quickly. Anderson Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents schedule their appointment as soon as possible. In an effort to offer more scheduling times, the practice also announced that they will be opening on Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. beginning September 27th, 2012.
Dr. Kathleen Monn and the staff at Anderson Pediatric Dentistry provide expert dental care for children in a bright, fun atmosphere for a trauma-free experience that instills a positive attitude towards lifelong dental care.
