How Can You Make Dental Health Month Important?
Parents play a crucial role in helping their children establish healthy relationships with oral health and their dentist that provides them biannual care. Help your child understand the following four areas that relate to oral health and wellness: 1) tooth decay prevention; 2) dental office procedures; 3) healthy gums; and 4) the importance of oral health for overall wellness and confidence.
Set an example for your children of dedication to oral health and wellness. Help them see the benefits you have enjoyed through your life by taking care of your pearly whites. Explain to them the daily process of keeping teeth healthy AND show them how you do it. When you have an appointment to visit the dentist, let your child come along so he can see you being brave and strong and showing trust in your dental care providers.
