Going to the Dentist (for Kids)



Q: What part of your body helps you to digest your favorite foods,
say “cheese,” and look great in pictures?
A: Your teeth!

It’s true. Your teeth are an important part of your smile, and they also help you
chew foods like crunchy apples or yummy pizza.

Brushing and flossing are important, but you also need to visit your dentist regularly
to keep your teeth strong and healthy. Let’s learn more about what happens at the
dentist’s office.

Commonly, hospital beds rented for home use are Manual, Semi-Electric, or Electric.  The Manual bed is very reliable and easy to use. It is an economical and high value solution.

How to Find a Good Dentist | Patient Advice

Karen Vasso, a 43-year old farmer from Chelmsford, Massachusetts, takes good care of her health. In addition to the copious amounts of physical exercise she gets while working, she’s an avid swimmer and triathlete, who’s completed a few solo 12.5-mile swims around Key West in Florida. She also has a background in nutrition and knows that good dental health is an important aspect of overall wellness. She’s long sought to make visiting a dentist regularly a priority. However, a couple of bad experiences over the years have caused her to think carefully about what makes a good dentist and how to find the right one for her.

The first incident occurred several years ago. At the time, Vasso was a single mother and her health insurance wasn’t terribly robust, so her options of which dentist she could see were limited. “I went to this quiet, dark office in the basement
