Parents have a tough time knowing how much dental care their kids need: When should I schedule my child’s first trip to the dentist? What toothpaste should I choose for my child? How can I help my child prevent cavities? What do I expect when my child’s teeth start to shed? Parents in Hong Kong are already so much overwhelmed by their children’s caring demands, growth and developmental needs, schooling, parenting practices etc., it could be really frustrating if their children are haunted by the agony of dental diseases and the fear of dental treatment. This lecture will walk you through how you as a parent could help your child take good care of their teeth and the tips to let them take charge of their teeth. I assure you that they will be chewing like a champ for the rest of their lives if they know the five things to treat their teeth kindly as early as they could.
