It is said that a child’s smile is the most beautiful thing in the world, but it takes work to keep it that way! The ongoing pandemic changed many things about our lives including our children’s dental habits and the ability to access regular dental care for them. “Significant negative effects on children’s oral health” is one result of this pandemic reported by pediatric dentists. In this latest episode of Stepping Stones Museum for Children’s “Under the Cupola” podcast, Star 99.9’s Kevin Begley and Robert Townes, the museum’s Director of Public Affairs, are joined by Dr. Katherine Fleming, an Assistant Professor of Pediatric Dentistry at UConn’s School of Dental Medicine to talk about the important things that we need to know to get our children’s smiles back on track. Please join us for a compelling conversation about why the time is now to get our kids back in the dental chair.
