Pediatric Dentist Offers Easy Ways to Celebrate Oral Health Month in June, Ewa, Hawaii

During June, get a jumpstart on your child’s dental care by celebrating oral health month. Whether you’ve taken your child to the pediatric dentist for their first checkup or are still working on a dental care routine, there are a number of different ways you can make oral hygiene fun for kids. Instead of sticking to your usual teeth cleaning routine, consider these fun ideas for oral health month.

How to Use Oral Health Month to Encourage Oral Hygiene With Kids

Buy a New Toothbrush

June is the perfect time to buy a new toothbrush for your child. Take them to the store and make it an adventure. Let your child pick out a toothbrush they like — whether it’s covered in princesses or a bold shade of blue. Many stores offer battery-operated toothbrushes for children that come with stickers for customization, which helps make brushing more enjoyable. 

Make it Fun

For example, there are invisible sugar bugs and the only way to defeat them is by thoroughly brushing and flossing their teeth. Or, have the whole family brush at the same time while members take turns singing songs to ensure ample time is spent cleaning.

Visit the Pediatric Dentist

To take the best care of your child’s teeth, find a professional to consult. Pediatric dentists specialize in children’s oral health, making them the ideal candidate. If your child has never been to the dentist, schedule an appointment in June to get them comfortable with teeth cleanings and exams. Make sure you have two appointments scheduled during the year to stay on top of oral health.
