Preventive Dentistry is arguably the most important dentistry our office can provide. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer preventive dentistry and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What is Preventive Dentistry?
Preventive dentistry is the general term to describe patients taking good care of their teeth both with their dental visits and with their oral hygiene at home. Preventive dentistry can be as simple as brushing your teeth twice each day, flossing your teeth at least once each day, or going to see your dentist every six months for a cleaning. At Smile Studio Kids, we understand that setting up your child to take good care of their teeth can oftentimes be overwhelming. Dr. Erika Venn and her pediatric dental team are available to guide parents through setting up good preventive dentistry habits for their children.
What Services are Included in Preventive Dentistry?
Dr. Erika Venn and her pediatric dental team are proud to offer the following preventive dentistry services to new parents:

Why is Preventive Dentistry Important?
Setting up your children to have good oral hygiene can start as soon as the moment their first tooth comes in. Oftentimes, new parents assume their children will pick up on good oral hygiene by watching those around them. That being said, those who don’t take the time to educate their children on the importance of brushing their teeth twice a day or teaching them to floss can put them at risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease very early on. Preventive dentistry allows your children the opportunity to have healthy teeth for the rest of their lives with just a simple routine.
