Dental Questions

Q. How do I get my kids to brush their teeth?

A. For elementary school children, play a favorite song or CD which lasts about 2 minutes and brush with the music.

A. For toddlers, let them see big brother or sister doing it. (no toothpaste needed)

A. For infants, use a damp, clean washcloth wrapped around your finger and brush their gums.

A. For teenagers, it's too late. You can't get them to do much. Let your dentist and dental hygienist work on this one. It is a job for a professional!

And remember NEVER, NEVER allow a child to run with a toothbrush in their mouth!
