Baby Dental Exams May Yield A Lifetime of Oral Health

Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Misee Harris and patient Davi Spurlock demonstrate a "Happy Visit."

When baby’s first tooth appears, it’s time to go to the dentist, experts say. And such visits should occur in the happiest, most stress-free of circumstances. We attend a "Happy Visit" at Children's Dental Clinic in Paragould operated by pediatric dentist Dr. Misee Harris.
