February is DENTAL HYGIENE MONTH!

 

Here’s some toothbrushing tips!

Help your child develop good brushing Habits:

Children will: ~ want to brush their own teeth, when they see you brushing your own teeth
~ Need you to finish brushing for them until they are about 8 years old and able to do a good job on their own
~ Be motivated to brush longer with helpers such as an egg timer
~ Enjoy getting a small reward once they complete their own toothbrushing chart ~ a good way to encourage good brushing habits!

Use the 2 for 2 rule!
Brush for 2 minutes, brush 2 times a day ~ ESPECIALLY before bed!
