Caring for young children's teeth is an important part of keeping their bodies healthy—and it's never too early to get started.

Strong first or baby teeth set the stage for strong permanent teeth, and help children play, learn, and grow. Children begin developing oral health habits early.  Once a child’s oral health habits are set, they often stay with the child for life. 

Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun.

This week’s calendar is a little on the thin side – but that’s to be expected, as many of us head out of town for a last vacation before school starts back next week. Enjoy!

It’s that time of year again: Area college students are returning to Tuscaloosa for the fall semester. With moving in comes a lot more garbage, and the city is responding accordingly in an attempt to ease the strain – temporarily extending service hours and placing additional resources, including dumpsters, in certain areas.

The environmental services division has placed nine additional dumpsters around Tuscaloosa, in areas with high college student populations from now until Sunday, Aug. 6.

The Bolta Group, a German-based company, announced the grand opening of its new production plant, Bolta US, in Tuscaloosa on July 21. State and local officials joined members of Bolta’s global management team to celebrate the completion of the company’s 200,000 square foot production facility located in the Tuscaloosa County Airport Industrial Park.

Druid City Living always wants to recognize our great local businesses. To the new businesses - welcome to town! Remember: Shop local.

One of the best ways to really understand your child is to get to know his/her world. Hang out with your child. Children are not always good about telling their mom or dad what their worries might be.
