(EMAILWIRE.COM, December 09, 2015 ) Coquitlam, BC -- Oxford Family Dental, a Dental practice in Port Coquitlam specializing in family and cosmetic dentistry, discusses the importance of Children's dentistry in Port Coquitlam.
Dr. Chahal, the owner of the dental practice, said: "At Oxford Family Dental, we love meeting children for the first time and leading them on a path to proper dental
According to the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), every child should visit a dentist by age 1, or as soon as the first tooth appears. The earlier the children are given regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. With regular checkups, tooth decay and cavities can be prevented. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children in the United States, with more than 40-percent of children having decay by the time they reach kindergarten.
To encourage children to take good care of their teeth, Dr. Chahal has taken it upon himself to set up what he calls "A No Cavity Kids Club" at his Port Coquitlam dental office. Said he: "At Oxford Family Dental we would like to show recognition to those special children and parents who demonstrate excellent home care. Kids 1-18yrs of age who present with no cavities on their routine cleaning visit will have the chance to win a $50 gift card to Toys R Us or Cineplex. One winner will be pulled at the end of each month." After all studies have consistently shown that children with strong, healthy teeth eat better and learn to speak clearly earlier. Those with good, even teeth also tend to smile with more confidence and tend to have better self-esteem.
A father to two children, Dr. Chahal makes it a point to extend his sense of compassion and concern for his own family to those of his patients. According to him, his main dental philosophy has always been "to help his patients achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime."
