Being a parent can be tricky. Moms and dads are responsible for so many aspects of their children’s wellbeing. From learning to read to learning to eat, parents shape the development of their kids in countless ways.
Consider a parent’s sway on the dental health of their kids. What kind of toothbrush should we use? Is fluoride a good idea? What is fluoride? Is it OK to still be using a binkie? It can be challenging to make seemingly endless decisions about parenting. The most significant reassurance a parent can get in any uncertain area is to get some help from someone who is dedicated to their craft.
