How to Teach Kids About Dental Hygiene: Fun (FREE) Activities!

4

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:
