Michaela had to be picked up early from school because of the pain in her mouth. When she was examined by Dr. Anthony Jimez, a dentist at Vibrant Health, infection and cavities were found. Michaela was 7 years old and this was her first visit to a dentist. Dr. Jiminez treated the infection and scheduled Michaela for a teeth cleaning appointment.
Michaela is smiling and back at school. She and her parents have adopted healthy oral health behaviors, including routine dental clinic visits.
Prevention is the key to achieving oral health. Children should see a dentist when the first tooth appears or no later than the first birthday in order to prevent dental problems. Michaela likes smiling and showing off her teeth after visiting our dental clinic!
