Tell us about teeth.  How common is it for kids to break baby teeth? How often do they get cavities in baby teeth? Is it ok to use adult toothpaste?

Did you vaccinate your children? According to the typical schedule? Do you support patients who choose to delay or not vaccinate at all?

High fevers.  When should we be concerned? Is it true that some kids just get higher than others?
