If you haven’t already established a dental home for your child or children, 2013 is a great year to do it! Tooth decay is the number one untreated disease in children under the age of 3 years! Dr. Richard and staff at Reid & Reid are specifically trained to examine your young child and determine if there are any dental needs.  Dr. Richard recommends bringing your child in at 12 months of age for a comprehensive exam including diet and hygiene counseling.  Exams on children younger than 14 months of age are complimentary.

Coming in 2013

Dental Health Month is coming up in February!  Dr. Richard will be visiting many of the elementary schools in Henderson County and giving a short presentation about dental hygiene and healthy diet choices.  Tune in next month for more information.

Reid & Reid are excited about the upcoming sponsorship of two community organizations.  We will be sponsoring the Flat Rock YouTheatre Spring Festival in April.  The FRYT website has more information.  In addition, we will be sponsoring the Mad Mountain Family MudFun to be held Friday 5/31/13 and to benefit HandsOn! A Child’s Gallery.  Both of these organizations offer wonderful opportunities to the youth of our community.
