My parents weren’t big on enforcing dental health when I was growing up. Because of that I was kind of lax in the whole brushing and flossing thing even well into my adult years. After a very painful root canal, I knew that when I had children I would be very conscious of making sure they had a good dental health routine and start them at a young age. Our daughter just had a dental checkup yesterday, and I’m proud to say at 19, she still has never had a cavity 🙂
