At Ackley Dental Group, we are passionate about the oral health of our patients of all ages. Since we typically see our patients only twice a year, we encourage you and your family members to maintain a regular oral hygiene routine at home to ensure your teeth are being cared for between visits to our office. While we know adults are more than capable of handling this directive, our child patients may need some extra help and direction from the adults in the home. Sometimes, problems can arise with teenagers, who are known for being reluctant to follow directions and may not make their oral health a priority.
Valentine’s Day isn’t the only important event happening this month. It’s also Children’s Dental Health Month. The American Dental Association has designated February to promote good oral health among children.

We offer a treatment that is designed to protect teeth from cavities and decay. Although it is primarily used for children, it can also be beneficial to adults.
