When you are getting your children ready for back to school there is more to think about then just stocking up on school supplies and shopping for new clothes. Below are a few tips on how to keep your children’s teeth for a fresh start.

Schedule a back- to- school visit- Studies show the first thing people notice about someone is their smile. Schedule an appointment to improve your children’s oral health and also their self-confidence.

Healthy lunches- Make sure you are packing your children lunches with healthy fruits and vegetables. It is important not only for their performance but also for a healthy mouth. Also, pack things high calcium such as milk or cheese. Skip the soda and juices with high fructose corn syrup and pack a water bottle.

Stock up on dental supplies- Just like school supplies, you should also stock up on dental supplies. Make sure you have all the essentials to start off a routine with good habits. You can also pick up a travel size tooth brush and floss and stick them in the kids’ backpacks.

Making brushing and flossing fun- During the summer kids tend to fall into bad habits. Help them get back on track by rewarding good hygiene with things they enjoy.
