Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health. Dr. Joseph R. Porter supports the ADA in their efforts.Whether you’re a member of the dental team, a teacher, or a parent, teaching kids how to develop good habits at an early age will encourage good dental health over a lifetime. As dental professionals at Porter Orthodontics, we also encourage parents to begin at an early age scheduling regular dental visits to give your child the best start possible.
