The foundation for good oral health starts as a child. The habits kids learn early usually stick with them throughout their lives. February is Children’s Dental Health Month. Use these resources to “brush up” on the basics of good oral health with your kids.
The American Dental Association
The ADA is the leading resource in the nation for dentists and their patients. Visit their website for fun activities for preschoolers, kids, and pre-teens. Find games, videos, and activity sheets for younger children, and quizzes and dental career information for older kids at their Mouth Healthy site.
Apples for the Teacher
This site has links to coloring pages, poems, word searches, book reviews, and craft ideas related to dental health. The site is targeted for teachers as well as kids.
Kids with a natural curiosity find fun experiments at Healthy Teeth. The site is put together by a group of dentists for elementary-aged kids. “Floss is the Boss” is an experiment involving dental floss, peanut butter, toothpaste, and a toothbrush. Visit Healthy Teeth for more details.
Visit Smiles of Bellevue today for a consultation with an excellent pediatric dentist. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your child!
