We do not offer FluMist.
New to Plattsburgh Primary Care Pediatrics!!
Fluoride Varnishing is being introduced as an additive to our annual check ups. Benefits of the treatment include prevention of cavities, strengthen teeth, and avoidance of tooth decay. While supplies last, patients will receive a brand new tooth brush!
While the sun is out let’s not forget to protect ourselves and our children from those harmful rays.
The CDC recommends these few options for sun protection:
- Wear sunscreen (15 SPF or higher)
- Wear extra clothing to protect exposed skin
- Wear a hat that protects the face, neck, ears, and head
- Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes
- Seek shade during the hours of 10a.m. – 4p.m.
