Cavity Free Club
At Dentistry On 10, we believe in helping children of all ages improve their oral health habits to start them on the path to a lifetime of healthy smiles. Her team is committed to helping children maintain healthy smiles with the Cavity Free Kids Club.
The Cavity Free Kids Club is a wonderful program that rewards children for demonstrating excellent home oral health care between their regular dental visits. When children come into the office without cavities, they are able to join this cool club! Children receive a fun prize and a special certificate of membership. Our staff also takes a picture of their beautiful smile to display on the membership wall in the office. We want to showcase the children that have taken good care of their oral health and use them as positive role models for other young patients who visit our practice.

Dr. Kotecha and her associates visit with young patients to explain the importance of a healthy smile. When children are educated on the benefits of brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist regularly, they often experience less anxiety and fears of the dental office and are more apt to maintain a healthy smile. Parents who are positive and supportive will help their child make great strides in excellent dental care.
Even children who visit our practice and have experienced cavities still receive a prize and certificate once the cavities have been addressed. They will also leave the dental practice with their very own toothbrush, floss, and Treasure Chest toy!
