Dr. Walther loves giving back to our amazing St. Louis community. This past weekend, he was fortunate to participate in “Give Kids a Smile”, an organization that provides free dental care and treatment to children whose families cannot afford dental services. He is so passionate about instilling in our children at an early age the great importance of oral health, starting from a very young age.
Unfortunately, tooth decay is the most common disease found in children in America. In addition, the enamel of baby teeth are significantly more succeptible to cavities. It is important that your child makes his or her first visit to the dentist between ages 1 and 2 in order to evaluate their teeth, check for cavities, provider fluoride treatment if necessary, and generally make sure everything is developing as it should be. The dentist can also give parents and caregivers valuable home care tips in dealing with your children’s dental care.
Dental decay and cavities are more avoidable when taking a proactive approach to your children’s professional dental visits, hygiene appointments and diligent home care. We are so inspired by this wonderful foundation and the many lives of countless children this mission has touched.
Check out the pictures of Dr. Walther at the Give Kids a Smile event in St. Louis. Every one deserves to have a healthy, radiant smile, and a child’s smile is the greatest reward there is.
We love to “pay it forward” in any way we can, and urge everyone to do the same! :)
