3 Tips to Start the School Year with a Smile

  1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT SNACKS

    Avoid granola bars instead offer crunchy snacks like celery sticks, baby carrots and cubes of cheddar cheese. Instead of chips or crackers, try seeds and nuts. Salty snacks may seem healthy because they don’t contain sugar, but simple starches can be just as harmful. These snacks break down into a sticky goo, coating teeth and promoting decay.

  2. TAKE YOUR KIDS TO THE DENTIST

    Have a healthy kick off to the school year by bringing your kids in for a cleaning and exam. Ask your child’s dentist about sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent decay. These treatments are easy ways to stop cavities before they start.

  3. HAVE FUN WITH BRUSHING AND FLOSSING

    Use a sticker calendar and place a sticker on each day they brush

    Play their favourite song for the two minute brush time

    Use a Y shaped kid-friendly floss holder for easier flossing

    Customize by helping your child pick a themed toothbrush in their favourite colour
