Books about going to the dentist


Young kids are more apt to understand dental health and other subjects if they see the topics illustrated in books. From the time your children are infants, you should begin to incorporate books about dental health, teeth brushing and visiting the dentist into their regular reading. Read these books about dental health to your little ones. You can find them at your local library or bookstore. ~via SheKnows

Teach How to Brush 2min2x


Help your kids brush their teeth 2min2x — 2 minutes each time, twice a day — for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems. The Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives recommends that you help or watch over your kids’ brushing until they’re 8. Once your child’s teeth start to come into the mouth, brush using a children’s toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than the size of a grain of rice. ~2Min2x

2Min2x has a playlist of 2-minute cartoons that your child can watch while brushing to learn the time!
