Parents don’t know enough about dental care as they should.
A recent study of nearly 500 parents with children younger than 12 was conducted to see how much they knew about dentistry. The results showed that about half of the parents didn’t take their children to visit the dentist on a regular basis.
There were 20 percent of the parents that incorrectly thought that they only had to take their children to the dentist when their teeth appeared. Also, only half of fathers and 63 percent of mothers made sure their children regularly brushed their teeth.
