  4. Dr. Jonathan Frankel in celebration of National Tooth Fairy Day is offering some important dental hints. Children with good oral hygiene habits are more likely to enjoy a lifetime of dental health.




    National Tooth Fairy day: February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day and just like the magical fairy, Jon Frankel knows how important it is to educate children on good dental hygiene care. Here are some tips on how to make brushing fun for kids:

    1. Put on some music – Play your kid’s favorite song while they are brushing their teeth. They will love the music and their teeth will be happy to be clean.

    2. Play a game – Sometimes playing a game like “Simon Says” while brushing makes it more fun for children of all ages and helps them learn proper brushing and flossing techniques.

    3. Positive reinforcement – Reward your children for good dental habits. Positive reinforcement urges kids to continue to develop good behaviors. But, be careful; don’t reward them with foods that will damage their teeth, like too much juice or sugar.

    4. Let them choose – Let your child pick out his or her own toothbrush and toothpaste by doing so, you will create excitement with your children about brushing their teeth. Just be sure that the new toothbrush is ADA approved.

  5. 5 Ways to Help Your Kids Eat Healthier
    New year, new you, new resolutions — everyone always says they want to eat healthier and kids shouldn’t be an exception. When kids eat healthier, they feel better and have more energy to be a kid. Healthy eating habits are also beneficial for successful oral health. Healthy foods contain the essential vitamins and nutrients kids need to grow. Parents and caregivers need to create an atmosphere where healthy foods are the first choice and junk foods are consumed in moderation.
    Here are 5 ways to help your kids eat healthier foods and less junk food:
    1.  Stock your pantry with healthy snack choices and avoid buying snacks that are void of nutrients and full of sugar such as fruit snacks. Encourage children to choose fruits if they have a sweet tooth — try a smoothie!
    2. Bake more often — there are so many recipes out there that contain fruits and vegetables that are kid-approved. Instead of breakfast pastries, try homemade muffins with oatmeal and fruit!
     3. Limit TV – there are a lot of commercials that promote fast food meals and candy. Spend time together playing games or outside.
    4. Create a family meal plan together — have your children help you plan your meals. Download this example
    Drink Water
     5. Eat together —  eating meals together helps families stay united. Celebrate with healthy snacks like fruit yogurt vs. chocolate sundaes.
