School is back in session, and summer is slowly shedding its leaves in exchange for fall foliage and cooler weather. 

As we greet the new season, we would like to bid a hearty farewell to the last signs of summer by announcing our July 2021 Smile of the Month Club

We Celebrate Kids and Their Commitment to Dental Care

Summer vacation is a time for fun and relaxation, but it’s also a time when ice cream and other sweets are classic treats to beat the heat. But these kids didn't let that stop them from keeping their teeth strong and cavity-free. 

We love celebrating our young patients and their accomplishments, especially when it comes to keeping cavities at bay. We are delighted and proud to have a group of kids—and their parents—who make dental care a priority. 

These avid brushers and flossers are cavity-fighting champions! Join us in celebrating these smiling superheroes and their dedication to good oral hygiene. 

A Nurturing and Judgment-Free Environment

Dr. Bret Jerger and the team at Jerger Pediatric Dentistry find the greatest joy in caring for your little one's oral health. We dedicate ourselves to providing encouraging and supportive dental care in a comfortable and nurturing environment where kids can feel free to be themselves. 

All of our patients are welcome to join our Smile of the Month Club by keeping their teeth clean by brushing, flossing, eating healthy foods, and visiting the dentist for routine checkups. 

Practicing Good Oral Hygiene at Home

In addition to visiting Dr. Jerger for routine dental exams and cleanings, it's essential that your child brushes and flosses their teeth every day and eats a nutritious diet. 

Brushing twice daily clears away plaque and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth, while flossing once daily cleans between the teeth where the toothbrush can't reach. 

The American Dental Association also states that diet and nutrition significantly influence one's oral health and can affect the development and progression of dental decay and gum disease. 

If your child practices good oral hygiene at home, they are more likely to have a mouthful of sparkling and sturdy chompers. 

Children who practice good oral hygiene and get regular dental checkups are more likely to have a mouthful of sparkling chompers.
