With so much (good and bad) content available on the web, finding the most accurate and up-to-date information can prove difficult. That’s why we at South Valley Pediatric Dentistry want to create a one-stop resource for parents seeking thorough, researched, scientific advice for their children’s all-around dental health. Our blog, SVPD Kids, contains articles with that goal in mind. In order to do so, our articles lean on information from expert sources and other dental writers. The following are some sources we’ve found helpful. They provide clear, concise and correct information geared toward parents who want to give their children the best dental care possible.
