Today my son had unexpected extraction’s, due to infection. Dr. Jess, and another woman I can’t remember her name, dark hair, made a super traumatic event so much easier. My son was Waylon, and I was the mom crying in the corner and holding his feet. You guys were all so sweet and got a tough job done! I loved dr. Jess absolutely so patient and thorough! I was so relieved when it was done and he is awesome tonight like nothing even happened today! Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart

Your Baby’s Dental Care: Tips from Pediatric Dentistry Clinic Experts
Although your baby probably won’t get his teeth until he is about six months old, you should start cleaning his gums soon after he’s born. Pediatric dentists recommend making an initial dental care appointment before your baby’s first birthday; this will ensure that his teeth and gums are healthy and developing normally. During the first year of his life, your baby may face several common dental issues. The following information can help you prepare for them.
