My nephew is allergic to cow's milk and he ended up with this problem after a few years of not enough calcium. Not to say your situation is exactly the same, just that it sounds like the most important thing is that you have learned that he is cavity prone so you have the opportunity to start doing everything you can to help him keep his other teeth healthy.
Brushing is tough at that age (make sure you have the right toothpaste) but it may be needed. Especially make sure he is getting balanced nutrition for his teeth. Is there fluoride added to your water? If not, your pediatrition can give you fluoride drops to strengthen his teeth.
I'm probably not saying anything the dentist hasn't already told you, so good luck with this. I hope Luke does just fine.

My son has to get caps put on in august. I had a hard time adjusting to it, but you just have to think of the positive side, he'll never have to get work done on those teeth again! :)
