According to recent studies, up to 98% of young Canadian children suffer from tooth decay. That’s why it is crucial for kids to start good oral hygiene habits when they’re young. Since your little one is already accustomed to using online learning with their school, why not use educational videos to teach them the importance of oral health? Our team has put together a few videos that demonstrate why kids should never miss a biannual dental appointment.
