Ontario Dental Association

I've been going to the dentist for as long as I can remember.

I can recall my three siblings and all I squished onto a couch getting our picture taken for the 'No Cavity Club', picking out our new toothbrush and toy and finding our previous No Cavity Club pictures in the photo album they had laid out.

I still see that same dentist (as do my siblings and parents) and although the office and staff have grown and changed throughout the years the work that the dentist does is impeccable. In fact, they're servicing the third generation of my family as my older son has already seen the dentist twice and my second son will start when he turns three.

Did you know that poor oral health can affect a person's quality of life, including their physical, mental and social well-being? A dentist can help identify, diagnose and treat or help prevent any issues that you might not know about. Visits to the dentist are paramount in keeping your smile glowing! Haven't been to the dentist in a few years? Now's the time to.

If you don't currently have a dentist to see, here's the place to find one.

There are other ways to keep your smile bright and your mouth healthy. Here are some tips:

- Eating a balanced diet that includes whole grains, fruits and vegetables and lean meats
- Seeing your dentist regularly
- Wearing a mouth guard when playing sports or during other aggressive activities
- Reducing the risks from stress, smoking and drinking
- Brushing for 2-3 minutes at least twice a day helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
A Quick tip: my boys often have me sing the alphabet song. It helps with their learning and I sing it slow enough that their teeth are nice and clean when I'm done.

Dental hygiene is important in our house. We visit our dentist regularly, brush at least twice a day and make sure to eat a balanced diet. If you're in need of a dentist, check out this site for more information.
