Q.

Cleaning baby teeth

Hi Doc

I have a 20 month old son. He used to enjoy brushing his teeth. But lately he doesnt want brushing up or even wiping them a clean cloth anymore.

Are there tricks I can use to get his teeth cleaned?

try getting a kids electric brush. Brush your teeth at the same time as him.
