This holiday season, we are sure you have spent a lot of time thinking about the perfect gifts for your children. No doubt your little ones created a wishlist, made requests, or maybe even sent a letter to Santa Claus. We are sure that opening those gifts will be a special time for you and your family. However, today we want to talk about a different sort of gift your can give your children. This is the sort of gift that will last for the rest of their lives: great dental care habits.
Model Great Dental Habits
One way you can give this gift is through modeling. Your kids want to do things the way that you do things, especially if they are still young. Take the time to model your hygiene routine for your kids, and let them join you at the sink! We promise fun times together, and you will see your little ones improve their hygiene habits by mirroring you.
Set Your Children Up For Success
Having great oral health is about more than just brushing and flossing, though that is a big part of the process. Your children also need healthy eating habits! Encourage your kids to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water and milk. Keep sugary drinks and snacks out of sight and out of mind! These healthy eating habits will improve your kids’ oral health making dental visits an easy and fun experience!
Give your kids the gift of healthy smiles this year. Take the time to teach them how to care for their teeth and enjoy the benefits in the decades to come! Contact us today to set up appointments for your little ones. We would love to meet with them soon to help you get them on the right track! From all of us a Holly Dental Care, Happy Holidays!
