Today we talk with Dr. Sean McDonnell, a Pediatric dentist about setting your child up for a lifetime of healthy teeth. Decay is unfortunately on the rise, and children often suffer the most from this disease. Dr. McDonnell specializes in the treatment of children. Listen to what he sees as the biggest threats to your child’s dental health today.

And perhaps even more important than this, is preventing the kind of experiences that lead to fear of the dentist. Those of us who know what that is like, know how it can keep you from getting regular preventive care. Then only when perhaps the tooth breaks or the pain is severe, will you seek treatment, and then it might be too late to save the tooth.

This all starts with those first visits when you were a child. Dr. Sean is fun. Hope you enjoy the episode!
