Ages 11 & Up
Kids are gaining more independence at this age and making more decisions regarding their diet and nutrition. During recall cleaning visits, we will educate your child on these decisions for their dental health and overall health. Sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks and junk food are consumed by many teens and healthier options are encouraged. By this age, kids most likely have all their permanent teeth and proper oral hygiene is demonstrated. Evaluations for orthodontics are completed at this age and referrals are given if needed.
