Starting healthy habits young is essential to helping kids grow up happy and healthy. Simple tasks like brushing your teeth, seeing the dentist, and flossing are critical to a child’s overall health and wellbeing. Children with untreated cavities, for instance, often experience pain and infections which can make it difficult to eat nutritious food, speak clearly, socialize and learn in school. As they get older, they may also be at a higher risk for conditions like cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer, respiratory and digestive problems, and other conditions.
DentalPlans.com, an online marketplace for dental savings plans, has launched a new, completely FREE activity book aimed at helping families teach their children about dental hygiene and oral health in a fun, engaging way.
The activity book includes three different activities. Here’s what’s inside:
Healthy Smiles Coloring Book
As you color, find answers to common questions, such as:
- How often should I take my child to the dentist?
- How long do they need to brush for?
- Tips for flossing
- And more!
A fun way to learn dental words!
Tooth Fairy Origami
Make losing baby teeth more fun!
Children can create an origami envelope to place their tooth in, before putting it under their pillow for the tooth fairy to collect.
DentalPlans.com is committed to helping raise a healthy generation of children through education on the importance of oral health. Families can maximize the activity books’ impact by doing the activities together and discussing how to apply the advice in their everyday routine.
If you don’t have a pediatric or family dentist, DentalPlans.com can help you find a dentist and explore ways to lower the cost with a dental savings plan.
Dental savings plans are an affordable alternative to traditional dental insurance that can provide plan members with discounts of 10-60% on most dental procedures, including braces, filings and more, for the whole family.
