Elk Grove Dentist Donates Time to Educate Children in her Community
September 22, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsSeptember 22, 2015 - Elk Grove, CA – Dr. Sireesha Penumetcha of Lakepoint Dental helps educate children on the right way to brush and floss their teeth, ensuring healthy smiles.
Dr. Sireesha Penumetcha and the Lakepoint Dental team recently sponsored oral hygiene awareness events at elementary schools throughout the Elk Grove area. During these events, Dr. Penumetcha and her staff taught children how to properly care for their smiles in order to prevent tooth decay.
Incorporating an effective at-home oral hygiene routine is especially important for children in the process of transitioning from baby teeth to permanent teeth. Often, the health of baby teeth dictates a child's long-term oral health and the correct development of bite and permanent teeth. Regular consumption of sugary drinks and failure to maintain an effective hygiene routine leads to dental caries, or cavities among children. Childhood cavities can have a negative effect on a child's oral health, as new teeth emerge in an unhealthy dental environment, but cavities can be easily prevented.
Dr. Penumetcha's community involvement is reflective of her mission to help patients of all ages achieve beautiful smiles. Many of the treatments Dr. Penumetcha offers at Lakepoint Dental are tailored to keep young smiles healthy and beautiful. By offering kid-friendly procedures, Dr. Penumetcha is able to help children in her office and in the community become accustomed to proper dental hygiene and adopt the necessary skills for life-long oral health.
