Dr. Christopher Lillo is a respected licensed dentist in New Jersey. As a general practitioner, Dr. Lillo treats patients from all walks of life, and some of his favorite patients are children. Dr. Lillo and his partner often work with children who have never received adequate dental care. Throughout his dental career, Christopher Lillo has traveled to many schools and daycare facilities to teach young children how to care for their teeth. Even toddlers as young as two years old can learn how to use a toothbrush with parental supervision.
Christopher Lillo knows the consequences of poor dental care. According to the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation, almost half of children under five years of age experience some degree of tooth decay. Moreover, nearly half of children in primary school who have cavities have not had them filled. If left untreated, tooth decay can cause gum disease, pain, and infections. Establishing early healthy dental care habits can significantly reduce the number of children who need extensive dental work.
