Cultivating Bright Smiles with Ellen Johns, DDS

From the moment the first tooth sprouts, a child’s dental health becomes a journey of care and learning that sets the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles. At Ellen Johns, DDS, we’re passionate about guiding families on the path of dental wellness, especially for the youngest members. Here’s why children’s dental health is paramount and how to nurture it.



Foundation of Lifetime Oral Health

Early childhood dental care lays the groundwork for healthy adult teeth. Decay in baby teeth can lead to damage in adult teeth waiting beneath. Regular dental check-ups allow for early detection and treatment of potential issues, ensuring a smooth transition from baby teeth to adult teeth.


Preventing Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children but it’s also entirely preventable. A routine of brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, eating a balanced diet, and regular dental visits can keep tooth decay at bay.


Instilling Good Habits

Early dental visits teach children that taking care of their teeth is a normal part of their health routine. Visits to Ellen Johns, DDS are an opportunity for children to learn about the importance of oral hygiene in a friendly and reassuring environment.


The Role of Parents and Caregivers

Parents and caregivers play a crucial role in children’s dental health. By setting a good example and making dental hygiene a priority, they can help their children develop positive attitudes toward dental care.
