Use the school year to get kids into a healthy dental care routine  

The dental health of America's children has been a major topic of conversation lately, especially since a recent study showed that when kids experience tooth pain, their school performance suffers. While discount dental plans can help children and adults alike gain access to dental health professionals, it's important that parents make sure that kids care for their teeth at home as well.

Recently, WEAU a Wisconsin news source, published an article explaining how parents can use the start of the school year to boost their child's dental health. According to the information provider, schedules can be a little hectic in the summer, but the school year should serve as a time to ensure that kids are brushing before school and at bedtime, and flossing at least once a day.

Also, with just a few weeks left in the summer, now might be a good time to schedule children a trip to the dentist, rather than waiting and being forced to take them out of school for a cleaning.

The American Dental Association states that baby teeth are just as important as permanent one because they help children learn to speak and chew properly. This is why it's important to prioritize a child's dental health, especially during back-to-school season.
