In honor of February being National Children’s Dental Health Month, our Naperville cosmetic dentist wants to encourage the importance of positive children’s oral health habits. This year’s slogan is “brush and clean in between to build a healthy smile.” Now is a great time to educate not only children, but also caregivers, teachers, and more helpful tips about oral health.

Here are some tips to help keep your kids engaged and dedicated to a bright, healthy smile.

Make it a Family Affair

Making the process of brushing and flossing a family affair is not only great bonding time, but it can help make the whole family look forward to oral health. Take this time in the morning and the evening to chat about your day or teach your child the proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Incentivize Them

Consistency is key when it comes to oral health. To keep your child on track, reward them with a trip to their favorite restaurant when they brush for two weeks straight. You can think of a reward or prize that will apply the best to your child. Even consider making a small calendar for your child to keep track of how many days they have brushed and flossed.

Personalize the Experience

The next time you’re visiting our Naperville cosmetic dentist, pick out a special toothbrush and toothpaste for your child. This will help excite them about brushing and flossing their teeth.

Make sure that you and your family are consistently visiting our team at Hyline Dental so we can address problems before they further develop. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
