10 Summertime Tips for Dental Health


10 Summertime Tips for Dental Health

Summertime is here! Time for trips to the beach, pool parties and fun in the sun.

With more relaxed schedules, it’s easy for kids to get off their routine. Here are 10 tips to help keep their teeth healthy all summer long.

10. Keep a Calendar

Visual reminders are awesome for helping kids create consistent brushing habits.

Post a calendar by the sink with space for two stars each day – morning and night. Kids delight in seeing a week full of stars and you get less stress when it comes to time to brush.

You can print brushing calendars for each month from the American Dental Association. We also found this one online that can used for any week.

Bonus points for taking the calendar on vacation to Grandma’s house. "</p
