After a summer full of baseball and junk food, it is a good idea to book your next dental visit to Rancho Dental before the kids of Temecula Valley and Murrieta go back to school!

Good oral health for kids begins at home with proper diet and dental hygiene. The daily routine of flossing and brushing twice with fluoride toothpaste is the basis for maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Children between the ages of 1-5 years are more prone to tooth decay and parents should make sure the child knows how to properly take care of their teeth by example. It is advised to keep children on a diet that is light on sugary snacks and is full of fruits and vegetables to encourage not only oral health but also physical health.
