Hale Family Dentistry celebrates its one-year anniversary of the Cavity-Free Club! We have had so much fun the past year acknowledging our little patients’ hard work. The Cavity-Free Club has proven to be a great motivational tool, too. Kids of all ages are happy to join the exclusive club, and most importantly, it helps maintain a healthy brushing routine.
The Cavity-Free Club is an exclusive group of patients at Hale Family Dentistry who have a mouth clear of cavities! All children ages 17 years old and under are eligible. To qualify for the no cavity club, Dr. Jonathan Hale will evaluate for any decay during their scheduled cleaning appointment. If the dentist observes a mouth free of cavities, they are in!
While it may seem unlikely, the Cavity-Free Club can help children who have cavities, too! Cavities are very common, and children should not be discouraged if they need fillings. The Cavity-Free Club incentives children to work toward better oral health. Parents like that they can use it to motivate their kids as well.
Our top priority in treating kids at the dentist is to create a positive experience. It is easier to build a trusting relationship than to repair one! Help your child be the best they can be. Visit Hale Family Dentistry for your kid’s first dentist appointment in Fort Wayne.
Developing healthy oral care habits at a young age has proven to reduce dental issues in the future.

According to the CDC, 1 of 5 (20%) children aged 5 to 11 years have at least one untreated decayed tooth.
