Today I read this article in the New York Times about a new law in Massachusetts that makes toothbrushing mandatory in preschools if kids attend for more than four hours per day. I'm all for good oral hygeine but that seems like a little much. What's next? Baths and toenail clipping after snacktime? Anyway, it got me thinking about two things.
A) I really need to get my kid to the dentist. If you know of a good pediatric place in Fairfield County, please post it below. The one place that was recommended to me doesn't take insurance and the first visit is almost $200! Thanks for any recommendations you can offer.
B) In the meantime, I hear that Stepping Stones Museum in Norwalk is offering FREE dental screenings to kids next Friday, February 5th from 1-5pm. It's part of Give a Kid a Smile Day and kids will receive a free toothbrush and a complete report about their dental health. Click here for all the details.
