February is National Dental Health Month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. 

 

Clip Art: Dental Hygiene B&W - preview 1

 

 

We are celebrating at Sunshine Preschool and Infant Care by having two local dentists visit our school to teach our preschoolers all about dental health!

For the first visit, preschoolers were treated to a puppet show, a story about losing your first tooth, and they even got to pretend they were teeth! We are looking forward to our second visit next week.

 

Fun Facts

Childhood dental disease is the #1 chronic childhood illness

But, good news!  It’s also the most preventable!!

 

Follow the 2-2-2 rule! :

Visit your dentist TWO times a year, and brush and floss TWO times a day for TWO whole minutes!

 

Here are some tips to encourage dental health:

 

  • Make it fun! Put on some music and have kids brush until the song is over.
  • Brush your teeth with your kids, they will see you doing it and want to be just like you!
  • Reward them with a new toothbrush for doing such a good job!
