A Year of Change
Many of you may have noticed that we have recently updated our website! We thought a blog section would be useful for parents to find out what's new at Pediatric Dentistry of Portland In addition to updates and announcements about what is happening at our office, we will also write occasional blogs with useful dental health information on topics like dental trauma, how to help your child stop sucking their thumb, ideas for tooth-healthy snacks, when to see the orthodontist, fluoride recommendations, and information on oral hygiene. Please let us know if you would like to hear more about a particular dental topic, and we will try to blog about it in the near future!
