February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

Published on February 6th, 2019

Every February, the American Dental Association celebrates National Children’s Dental Month to help promote good oral health to not only children but also to caregivers and teachers. As a family dentist in Bloomingdale and West Loop, Pure Dental Spa is dedicated to providing your entire family with the high-quality dental experience that you deserve. This year’s theme is “brush and clean in between to build a healthy smile.”

Here are some tips on how to get your child invested in their oral health.

Make it a Family Affair

There’s no fun in brushing your teeth alone! Gather your family together both morning and night to help keep your kids excited in brushing and flossing. Use this time as an opportunity to bond and talk about the importance of oral health, what your day is going to be like, upcoming plans, etc. This will help make brushing and flossing an activity the entire family enjoys.

Incentivize

Rewarding your child with a trip to the movies or their favorite restaurant is a great way to keep them interested in oral health. Make a calendar for them that they can mark off every day of successful brushing and flossing. After a week, give them a small reward, and after a month, reward them with a more significant prize.

Let Them Pick Out their Own Toothbrush

The next time your child visits our family dentist in Bloomingdale or West Loop, they will be able to pick out a brand new toothbrush of their choice! Popular options include cartoon characters and movies. Allowing your child to pick out his or her own toothpaste will get them more excited as well.
