February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Children learn good habits at an early age, so it’s important to teach them how to care for their teeth. Baby teeth still need some TLC as proper care for them will ensure their adult teeth will grow in healthy and strong. Be a positive role model for trips to the dentist and make sure the whole family visits for routine exams and cleanings. Visiting the dentist twice a year will help you and your children live a healthy lifestyle.
For a more interactive brushing style, try the Philips Sonicare Bluetooth electric toothbrush. This toothbrush helps to promote longer brushing and also allows them to track brushing with an app!

Jon Frankel’s Tips for Tiny Brushers:
- Brush your teeth twice a day. Find a toothbrush your child loves such as one with their favorite character on it.

- Smile! A healthy smile leads to a healthy self-esteem
