Getting Kids Excited About Dental Health

Getting Kids Excited About Dental Health

Published on March 8th, 2018

It’s easy to understand the importance of dental health as adults, but as a kid, the benefits of dental health might not be so obvious. As providers of family dental care in Cary, Il, we want to ensure your entire family not only takes dental health seriously but gets excited about it as well. Here are some ways to do so.

Brush & Floss Together

There’s power in unity. If brushing and flossing your teeth becomes a morning and night-time ritual for your family, it can be something kids (and adults!) enjoy. Think of it as bonding time before you head off to work and your child goes to school.

A Special Brush & Toothpaste

This tried-and-true method is popular for a reason. Let your child pick out his or her own toothbrush. It’s likely that it will feature their favorite characters from a movie or television show. There are also many kid-friendly flavors of toothpaste like strawberry or watermelon. Whatever gets them excited about brushing is a plus!

A Rewards System

Don’t turn to sugary snacks like candy or fruit snacks. Incentivize them with stickers, a meal at their favorite restaurant or extra time watching television.

Whatever your chosen method or methods may be, the bottom line is, there are ways to get your family excited about dental health. If you or someone you know is in need of family dental care in Cary, Il, contact Cary Dental Associates today!
