Family Education

Parents or caregivers are a child’s first teacher in life and play an important role in maintaining his or her overall health. At Plancich Dental, we understand that your attitude towards dental care can have a major impact on your child as they grow up and develop their own dental habits. Maintaining a good dental care routine at home is essential for healthy gums and teeth, as well as preventing oral health problems from occurring in the future. We are committed to empowering families to make smart choices when it comes to their oral health. We take great pride in being a family dentist in Tacoma, as well as serving as an educational resource for families.
