We know that parents cherish their children’s smiles. That is why we focus on preventing oral conditions in early childhood so that they have a solid foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss both sides of every tooth

Don't Believe Everything You Hear about Oral Health

Close up of toothbrush with toothpaste | Dentist Evansville IN

As with most health information, what we learn about dentistry constantly expands. Old myths take a while to die out and sometimes people believe outdated or untrue facts.

Here are a few that are still commonly believed today:
