February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Help children learn more about teeth and hygiene with these dental health printables.
Good dental hygiene habits should be started early! By teaching children about their teeth, proper brushing, and eating health foods, parents and teachers can start kids on the right path.
Dental Health Printables
Dental health is vitally important for kids of all ages, but it’s especially crucial during childhood when teeth are growing and developing.
Ensuring your child has a good oral hygiene routine is essential for ensuring they maintain healthy teeth and gums.
How to Prevent Cavities
Cavities can be prevented by brushing and flossing regularly, eating healthy foods, and visiting the dentist regularly.
Parents can help their children to prevent cavities by making sure that they brush and floss regularly, eat healthy foods, and visit the dentist regularly.
This pack includes a “tooth care chart”. Print and laminate the page and hang it beside the bathroom sink.
Have kids use dry erase markers to mark the chart each time they brush their teeth.
This is a great way to help kids build a habit of brushing and flossing their teeth twice a day.
Foods That Are Bad for Teeth
When discussing tooth care with your children, it’s a good idea to talk about healthy eating habits.
Explain that moderation is the key. While some foods are better than others for our overall health and the health of our teeth, it’s okay to have the “unhealthy” foods every now and again.
Sweets are okay as long as they don’t over do it, and as long as they brush and floss their teeth twice a day.
What About the Tooth Fairy
We do the tooth fairy in my house. If you don’t, you can skip the pages about the tooth fairy in this pack.
Inside this free printable, you’ll find a tooth fairy official receipt and a note from the tooth fairy.
Kids will love finding these under their pillow after they’ve lost a tooth.
