At Rivercrest Family Dental, we care about the health of our patients of all ages. We often stress the importance of caring for your oral health. Our adult patients are responsible for their own oral health, and children rely on an adult to help them care for their teeth. What about our teenage patients? While it is important for adults to ensure that our teenage patients are visiting our office for routine hygiene examinations and cleanings, adolescence is a time when teens become responsible for caring for their oral health on a daily basis. We want to help our teenage patients understand the harm they can cause to their teeth when they do not care for them properly.
