This February, Give Your Children Something to Smile About! 
     Thanks to recent advancements in dentistry at Wade Kifer, DDS , including early stage cavity-detecting lasers and advanced formula fluoride varnishes, protecting your child’s teeth from decay-causing bacteria and cavities has become much easier. Tooth decay is a disease that cannot be treated with immunizations. Early detection and proper home care, along with a healthy diet, can give children the knowledge and means to maintain a healthy smile.
     February is National Children’s Dental Health Month our office is working to celebrate healthy teeth for all of our young patients this month. The American Dental Association (ADA)  and dental professionals across the country work together every February to educate our communities on the importance of developing early healthy dental hygiene routines. 
     Dr. Wade Kifer is working to teach children the basic of oral health, the dangers of sweets and sugars, and the benefits of regular dental check-ups and cleanings. Developing strong dental habits at a young age, like brushing their teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day, can ensure a beautiful, healthy smile that will last a lifetime.
