Did You Brush Your Baby's Gums?

Dental care begins well before baby's chompers make their debut. Pediatric dentists recommend that parents get in the habit of cleaning their little one's toothless grins once a day.

Yeah, we did. My side of the family has a dental calcium deficiency, so its really really important for us to start habits early. You would be surprised how often people don't brush at all, even after they get teeth.
