How to Make Brushing a Family Activity

Try these fun and simple ways to get your kids excited about brushing and make it a family oriented activity.

•  Read books about brushing. Children love story time. To get them excited about brushing head down to the local library and pick up a couple of books about brushing. They'll love it and next time it is time for them to brush they may be a bit more eager to get to the sink.
•  Take family trips to the dentist. A great way to involve the whole family in the practice of proper oral hygiene is to take family trips to the dentist. Make it a point to schedule everyone's dentist appointments on the same day around one another.
•  Make it a family affair. Tooth brushing should be a family affair. Why? Because it is more fun that way! Set a specific time for everyone to meet in the bathroom and brush together.
•  Brush the pet's teeth. Your pets are part of the family too. So, why not brush their teeth together as a family as well!
