Dr. Barnes: I think the summer is a time to rest, go on vacation and eat properly so that you’re all ready to start a new school year with lots of energy and good health.
The Kiddos Kid Reporter: How can kids avoid getting cavities?
 Dr. Barnes: The best way you can avoid getting cavities is by
brushing and flossing. Especially when you’re young it’s important that you brush and take the
adequate amount of time to cover all the surfaces of the teeth. Most children brush very quickly, but their parents should supervise so that they know that they’re doing it properly. Once you get a little bit older then it’s very important to floss because most of the decay at that time is between the teeth.
The Kiddos Kid Reporter: What’s the part that you love most about your job?
 Dr. Barnes: Seeing the patients and making them smile – that’s what I love the most.
