What should I do if my child will not brush their teeth?

* allow your child to pick out their own toothbrush

* brush together

* make it fun - dance or sing

* set up a reward system

* brush your child’s teeth and allow them to brush yours


It’s important to make teeth brushing part of your child’s daily routine, because being healthy should not be an option. If you have any questions or concerns regarding brushing, please feel free to contact us.
