Parents and guardians should start instilling healthy dental habits in children at a young age. Activities like brushing teeth as a family, rewarding consistent dental hygiene, and going to the dentist are some encouraging ways to make children proactive about their own dental health. Also, this will help to make the stigma associated with seeing a dentist less traumatizing for them. These habits will help children maintain healthy dental habits and a bright smile full of pearly white teeth for years to come.
- Although we all know the dentist is not everyone’s favorite place, The Dentist can still be a fun place to go to!
- Teach your kids why it’s important to keep their teeth clean and brush and floss your teeth as a family.
