We sat down with Metro North Oral Health Principal Dentist Dr Tarini Singh to talk about her passion for brightening the smiles of Queensland’s kids and teenagers. 🤗
“Wearing a great smile can boost confidence and improve happiness, especially for kids,” Tarini said.
“I love to create good hygiene habits and positive experiences so kids can grow up with a full and healthy smile, but it takes more than an annual check-up! I want parents to know there’s a lot they can do at home and when visiting the dentist to help foster excellent oral hygiene for their young ones.”
