Lone Tree parents usually know the basics on children’s oral health: limit sugar, make sure they brush and floss regularly, take them to the dentist for twice-yearly exams and cleanings, discourage between-meal snacking, see that they get enough calcium and Vitamin D, etc. Many Colorado parents also give their kids fluoride supplements if their municipal water supply has an inadequate level of fluoride.
