A Salt Lake City family displays the work of its dentist As a dentist who has helped young Salt Lake City patients for years, Dr. Kieth Warr knows how hard it can be to get children to take care of their teeth, especially in today's sugar-laden world of sweets, sodas and snacks. In light of this common challenge for parents, the American Dental Association brings you National Children's Dental Health Month this February to promote good dental health, habits, and hygiene.

This year's out-of-this-world slogan is “Sugar Wars” and features the spaceship USS SugarSwatter, equipped with toothbrush swatters for the fight against the Sweet Tooth Invaders. The focus of NCDHM, now in its 75th year, is to encourage children and teenagers to improve their dental hygiene habits by:

  • Brushing two minutes, two times a day
  • Cleaning between their teeth daily
  • Limiting snacks and eat healthy meals
  • Visiting their dentist regularly

Following these recommendations can prevent a lot of dental health issues and get your children started on the right path to good dental health. Dr. Warr and his experienced staff enjoy caring for the dental health of families, taking into account the age of each patient in order to tailor a dental experience that is comforting and just right for them. Dr. Warr sees patients in all age ranges, from children as young as one year to teenagers and their parents to senior citizens.
