Commenting on a recent advice column, the Los Angeles-based dental practice notes the importance of parents to cultivate healthy and hygienic dental behaviors in their children.

Many families are not ingraining proper dental hygiene habits in their children

Medical Center Dental Care notes that parents should schedule dental check-ups for their children at least every six months.

San Fernando Valley-based Medical Center Dental Care is a dental group committed to meeting and exceeding the dental needs of every member of the family. According to a recent January 12 Dear Abby advice column published on The Kansas City Star, a mother is concerned that her husband’s reluctance to maintain his dental health is having a negative influence on their children. She states that “[her] son now thinks it’s OK not to brush his teeth because his father doesn’t.” She also wants to avoid sending the wrong message to her kids, while expressing to them how extremely important oral hygiene is to their overall health. Medical Center Dental Care notes that this may be a pressing issue affecting many families, and they want parents to ingrain healthy dental habits in their families. The dental offices help families by not only providing them with quality care, but by advising parents on what to watch out for between appointments:

  • Children’s Dentistry – Firstly, parents should schedule dental check-ups for their children at least every six months. Alongside this, the pediatric specialist at Medical Center Dental Care, Dr. Magnolia Becker, has extensive experience caring for the needs of young patients, and knows precisely what needs to be done to keep children calm, comfortable, and at ease when receiving necessary dental treatments. She hopes that “every child has a lifetime of healthy teeth.”
  • Supporting Parents – Between check-ups, parents need to be in charge of their children’s dental health by encouraging healthy brushing and flossing habits. The dental specialists at Medical Center Dental Care say they take the time to teach parents how to monitor and cultivate these habits while encouraging other healthy behaviors.
  • Established Reputation – Pediatric dentist Dr. Becker has been providing excellent dental care for over 15 years, and Medical Center Dental Care highlights its well-established team, which provides services including oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, and orthodontics.

Medical Center Dental Care notes that, while other Los Angeles-based dental practices may offer a similar range of services that they offer to patients, few can offer them at such a consistently high level of care. The practice has received a number of positive accolades by former and current patients, and maintains a five-star rating on the Yelp, the community ratings website.
