3 Essential Kids’ Dentistry Tips for Back-to-School Time, Anchorage, Alaska

The start of the school year is the perfect time to reinforce positive habits with your children, especially in relation to oral hygiene. With your kids back into the routine of getting ready for school, this an ideal opportunity to remind them about the importance of proper brushing and flossing. The kids’ dentistry experts from Discovery Dental in Eagle River, AK, share some back-to-school dental tips.

Here are a few of this family dentist’s leading bits of advice to improve your children’s dental habits this school year:

  • Shop For New Supplies: When you think of back-to-school supplies, notebooks and pencils come to mind. Yet, this is also a great time to assess whether you need to swap out toothbrushes. While out purchasing school essentials, also pick up new toothbrushes for your children. Consider getting a fun toothpaste for younger ones as having supplies they like will make their dental care habits something they look forward to as the school year begins.

Allow time before bed for flossing and brushing, and ensure that your children are up early enough in the morning to brush their teeth before heading to school.
  • Schedule Appointments Now: With after-school clubs, sporting events, and other activities, your calendar can fill up quickly through autumn. If you haven’t done so already, schedule your children’s next appointments for routine dental care with Discovery Dental.
