As a family dentist serving Centreville, VA, Dr. Nadder Hassan encourages parents to bring their children to the dentist early so they can become familiar with our dental office.

How to Prevent Pediatric Tooth Decay
One of the biggest challenges in children’s dentistry is preventing tooth decay. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry estimates that over 50% of first-graders and 80% of 17-year-olds have cavities requiring a tooth filling. Parents can do many things to ensure the health of their children’s teeth:
- Brushing teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste (over age 2)
- Flossing once a day
- Limiting sugary drinks and beverages
- Following recommended guidelines for nursing, bottle and sippy cup use
