Summer break is nearly here. You can feel the excitement in the air. No school, sleeping in, summer camps, spending time outside, swimming, time with friends. The beginning of summer is ripe with possibilities and Anderson Pediatric Dentistry wants to make sure you have the best summer.

Of course, the best summer shouldn’t end with a trip to your pediatric dentist to get a bunch of fillings! Often times, the lack of routine and the drastic change in daily diets can have a negative effect on your child’s teeth. It’s easy to see how. A few mornings sleeping in and “forgetting” to brush teeth, combined with a few more sodas or sugary drinks throughout the hot days, ice pops constantly dripping on your child’s teeth, vacation car trips with sugary snacks- these are all easily imagined situations. And don’t forget the dental emergencies that may arise when the game of flag football turns into a tackle game or your daughter decides to perfect her triple front twist off the diving board!

But summer dental care doesn’t have to be stressful. Follow our Summer Dental Tips below to keep your child’s smile shining bright all summer long!
