Sally, one of my long time dental hygiene patients, had a baby a few months ago was asking me about her baby’s and teeth when she came in for her first first postpartum dental visit. I gave a Rub-A-Dent package as a baby gift the last time I saw her during her second trimester of pregnancy.
I was about to go out the door to my annual dermatology appointment when the phone rang. It was just minutes before 8am and I noticed it was my next door neighbors calling, a young couple with a nine month old baby.
