Lead By Example

We all know that children learn by mimicking. If we smile, they smile, and so on! Lead by example with your own dental hygiene. Any time you brush your teeth, bring your toddler along–allow them to help apply the toothpaste to your toothbrush and then let them help you brush your teeth. Eventually, they will want to do the same thing!


Dental Essentials

Allow your toddler to pick out their own toothbrush! There are so many toddler-friendly dental options to choose from. If you find your toddler doesn’t like a particular toothpaste, try several brands and flavors until you find the one that they prefer. Once your child is old enough, add an alcohol-free mouthwash that has a fun flavor they may prefer (when recommended by your child’s dentist). 


Activity Time!

We all know hands-on activities are the best way to teach kids lessons! Here are some fun dental activities you can play with your child: 

  • “Block Flossing”: Have your child practice the motion of flossing with a block of Play-Doh.
  • Sing or play a song that times your child’s brushing time. 
  • Read kids’ dental books or play a dental game that shows them the visual impact of good foods vs. bad foods (sugar) on their teeth
