Keeping kids' teeth healthy requires more than just daily brushing. During your first visit we will examine your child's teeth and ask you about your water supply. That's because fluoride, a substance that's found naturally in water, plays an important role in healthy tooth development and cavity prevention.
Fluoride and the Water Supply
Some communities have naturally occurring fluoride in their water; others add it at water-processing plants. Some of our patients have well water or other sources of drinking water and it may not contain any natural fluoride.
We have a service to test your homes water supply and then will recommend any appropriate fluoride supplements for your children. Simply bring us approximately 10 ounces of water and we’ll have it tested for you!
