Today I found a wonderful website dedicated to helping adults help children develop habits of good oral hygiene. This website is offered by the ADA and national AdCouncil and is full of information, games, videos, and lots of fun things to help children learn how important it is to take care of their teeth. Too many children live with the pain and embarrassment of having poor oral hygiene. It is something so simple, just to teach a child to brush twice a day and it could potentially save them from many years of poor health issues. I love how this ad campaign points out how much time children “waste” on viewing television or playing video games and they could use just 2 minutes of that time to do something so important as taking time to brush their teeth. Click on the link below and watch one of the videos.
Its a pretty simple thing to brush your teeth twice a day. If you are a parent or are a child care provider in any way, make sure you help them develop good habits of taking care of their teeth…..and while you’re at it, make sure you are taking good care of your own PEARLY WHITES!!
