Braces at age four? Not exactly...

At Barnett Orthodontics we know that a beautiful smile starts with education. Knowing how to properly care for our teeth is an integral part of achieving this. Therefore we've been actively seeking to educate our community's youth in proper brushing techniques to start those healthy habits early. After all, these could be our future patients. Pictured here is Dr. Barnett at a local preschool teaching 4 year olds the importance of taking care of those pearly whites!

It's never too early for dental preventative care, even in some cases, orthodontic treatment. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive their first orthodontic evaluation at the age of 7. If your dentist suggests a consultation or if you have any concerns regarding your child's smile, we would love to sit down with you. Give us a call today! 330.745.4497
