Fort Campbell Army Dentist shares best practices for Children’s Dental Health

 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Establishing good oral hygiene habits in children early can set them on a course for good dental health for life, explained one Fort Campbell-based dentist.

“Parents should start practicing dental care as soon as the first tooth pops into the mouth,” explained U.S. Army Dentist Capt. Katherine McCabe, assigned to Fort Campbell’s Taylor Dental Clinic. For infants, McCabe recommends using only water and a soft-bristled toothbrush or fingerbrush that is worn on an adult’s finger. Toothpaste is not typically recommended for children under two years old.
