February is Oral Health Month

Brush, Book Bed!

Instill a brush, book, bed routine, by brushing together, reading, and then settling down for bed every night. If you do this, it's less likely children will put up a fuss as they get older.

Let your child choose their own toddler size, soft toothbrush and practice brushing together.
