Do you ever find yourself asking your kids, “Did you brush your teeth today?” or “Did you floss your teeth before bed?” If so, you’re not alone. It’s important to help your child keep on track when it comes to oral hygiene, but there’s an easier way to do so. To help you, Dr. Carla LaLande and our dental team are happy to provide you with an oral hygiene checklist!
This checklist can help your child around age 4 and older keep up with their oral hygiene routine. All you need to do is download this checklist, print it, and post it somewhere in the bathroom within your child’s reach. After they complete a task in the oral hygiene routine, they can check off the step and feel good about having a healthy and clean smile! If necessary, you can also offer incentives that can motivate your child. These incentives can be: a new movie, a day at the water park, a day without chores, a new toy, etc. Feel free to customize the checklist the way that works for you and your child!
If you have any questions about this oral hygiene checklist, or about general oral hygiene in Las Vegas, Nevada, please call Children's Dental Care & Orthodontics at 702-254-8858. Our dental team will be happy to help you!
