fun activities for national children’s dental health month

Did you know that February will be National Children’s Dental Health month? As the wife of a dentist I am all too aware of such things, lol. The great thing about it being early in the year is that this gives you the opportunity to educate your children (and maybe yourselves!) about good oral hygiene and set the tone for the rest of the year. This post is sponsored by Michael J. Young, DDS, Inc. located in Foresthill, California. Information is taken from www.ada.org and opinions are my own.

making dental health fun

With Mike’s occupation and that fact that we have four children we know it can be challenging to brush and floss their teeth–let alone get them excited about the process! National Children’s Dental Health Month focuses on educating children (and their caregivers) on the benefits of good oral health care, and in a fun way! There are lots of great activity sheets to get your little ones excited about taking care of their smile, and I’ve made a couple of new ones for you too.

    These look like such fun activities for kids! My kids enjoy going to the dentist, and it is because their dentist makes it fun for them.

    I think it’s great to educate children on the importance of dental health early. If they start learning at an early age it can stay with them as they grow up.

    One thing I have always been grateful for is that both of my boys really like brushing their teeth. As they get older, I’m hoping they will do a great job at taking care of them.

    Gosh, I love this so much!! I wish I’d have these printable when my 3 kids were little ones, lol. I worked or an Oral Surgeon for 20 years and I’ve always been supportive of great dental care at an early age! Nice post … shared on FB 😉

    I think it’s easy to make dental hygiene fun! And very important to instill a routine early on!

    I know it can be hard to get kids to brush and floss (and I’m guilty of dragging my feet when it comes to flossing, too)! There are great ideas to get kids into it!

    These are such fun activities to get kids excited about dental care! Personally, I’ve always loved the dentist as a kid, but i know how challenging it can be for others.
