Tips for Children’s Dental Health Month
By Dr. Karen Babos, Chief Medical Officer, Molina Healthcare of Illinois
Did you know that the best time to start teaching your kids about dental health is before they turn one? Imprinting good habits early can lead to better checkups forever.
Here’s what you can do at each stage of your child’s life to keep their teeth healthy.
Above all, make brushing fun for your kids! Pick out a toothbrush with them, sing a silly brushing song, praise a job well done, make brushing a sweet together time for you both.
And to find a dentist near you, visit ADA.org.
