Are you or a loved one pregnant, planning a family soon, or a new mom? This is such an exciting time for a family, whether it is the first time you are experiencing this life event or you have been through it before.

One important detail that is often overlooked before, during, and after pregnancy is oral care, when it should really be at the top of the list. Of course, the mother’s prenatal care and baby’s pediatric care is extremely important, but many patients don’t realize the effects that a lack of dental care can cause.
