February is Children's Dental Health Month
Every aspect of a person’s health is important and should never be neglected. And with that comes the understanding that it is our responsibility to take care of our own wellness by developing good habits and routines. This is no truer in any other circumstance than it is with practicing proper oral care habits every day.
And just as it is with learning to do anything else that is good for you, it’s best to start at a young age. From the time children first begin to teeth and take their first trip to the dentist there is no better time to start than right then. So, since February is Children’s Dental Health Month, your friends here at R+R Dental put together a quick and helpful guide for parents to get their children on the road to a healthy mouth early:
Children’s Dental Health Month Importance
By bringing awareness to the topic and getting people talking about it, this month-long recognition of the importance of children’s dental care can get the attention it needs to become a national trend.
Helpful Reminders About Child Dental Care
By making it a regular part of your routine in your life as their parent and role model, you greatly increase the chance that your kids too will learn to develop these healthy oral care habits.
Dental Tips to Make Brushing Fun
Things such as letting your child choose their own toothbrush and toothpaste, as well as playing two minutes of their favorite songs while brushing are just two of the many ways you make it seem more like a fun activity and less like a chore.
