I’m Amelia Phillips, Dental Hygienist, wife, and mother to two crazy little boys. Since having children I have realised just how hard looking after the dental health of our babies is. Raising children sometimes feels like trying to organise an army in a hurricane. There is so much to remember that looking after their teeth slips a long way down the priority list in our exhausted brains.
I used to preach to my patients that “dental decay is on the rise in first world countries and we all should be doing better” … ‘blah, blah, blah’. Having now gained real life experience trying to actually brush a toddlers teeth, along with trying to figure out all of the sneaky names for sugar, I can see the error of my ways. Trying to keeps our children’s teeth healthy is HARD.
I created this site packed with scientific information, along with my own experience as a Dental Hygienist and mother, to make things easier for parents to figure it all out.
