Fun Back To School Tips For Teaching Kids Good Dental Care – 4 Tips & Tricks

August 13, 2018

Pretty much all of Louisiana is back to school this week and we have a few tips for parent to help ease their kids into getting back into the regular dental routine.

Having a hard time getting your little one to remember to brush and floss daily?

Try a little encouragement like some of these tips below!


1. Letting them pick out a fun toothbrush

Having them involved and feeling in charge in any type of way can act as a small incentive and encourage them to want to brush their teeth, especially if it means they get to use their brand new super cool toothbrush! 😎

2. Create a game or contest

Have more than one child? Try turning their dental habits into a fun contest or game. Nothing makes kids want to do something more like feeling like a winner!

3. Educate them on the importance

Not only should you be teaching your kids the "How" in practicing good dental care, but also the "Why." Teach them the consequences with fun charts and pictures so they can visually see the need to take good care of their teeth.

4. Make it a routine

Consistency is key. Kids are way more likely to stick to their dental habits if it becomes part of their daily routine.

Still need to schedule your child's back to school check up?
