Special thanks to Dr. Monica Cipes, Spokesperson from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Sandy Tursi, Registered Dental Hygenist for appearing on our television premiere to air on April 10th in Connecticut and to Sheila Coutant, Executive Director of the Connecticut SIDS Center for her fantastic demonstration and talk on the show to air on Tuesday, April 17th! Without the cooperation of individuals and organizations like these, our website and TV series would not be possible.

Care of Baby Teeth - Early care of baby teeth is very simple, but so important to prevent a number of problems that could affect a child's health. Establishing good habits and a healthy attitude at an early age is critical to maintaining good oral health for a lifetime. Learn all about early care of baby teeth at Robyn's Nest.

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay - Early childhood caries or baby bottle tooth decay is a condition whose name has changed to better describe its versatility. While the bottle is a main perpetrator, it is not the only cause of cavities in young children. Medications sweetened by sugar to make them more appealing to young patients and frequent eating and drinking of liquids are also culprits. Learn how to prevent baby bottle tooth decay and early childhood caries today before your little one has to learn the hard way about Novocain and fillings.

Baby's First Dental Visit - The ADA (American Dental Association) now recommends that a child have his/her first dental visit by the 1st birthday or the eruption of the first baby tooth! This is much sooner than in the past. It used to be recommended by age 3. The reason is that they are finding many more children with early childhood caries and in need of treatment. Learn what to expect during this first visit and how to prepare your little one.

Reduce the Risk of SIDS - Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of an infant under one year of age. SIDS, sometimes known as crib death, strikes nearly 5,000 babies in the United States every year. You as a parent can reduce your child's risk by not smoking around your baby. Learn more ways to reduce your child's risk.
