Pediatric Care Is Important to Children and Their Families
Public health and wellness has taken center stage in the 2016 Presidential Election. From Hillary Clinton’s diagnosis of pneumonia leading to dehydration, exhaustion, and a near collapse at a 9/11 event over the weekend to Donald Trump’s on air visit with Dr. Oz, the health of this election’s candidates looks to be a major talking point for now.

Once you skip a dental visit, it becomes easier and easier to avoid the dentist. That is, until a dental emergency exists.
