6 Tips to Help Your Family Start the School Year with a Healthy Smile
Updated: 8/19/2009 9:53:07 AM

Are your kids ready for a picture perfect first day of school? These five easy dental care tips can help you ensure your kids’ smiles shine as bright as their new sneakers on their first day of school.
 
1. Schedule Back-to-School cleanings and checkups
 
School starts in just a few short weeks and as you know, once the school year is underway, it becomes more difficult to fit a dentist visit into your busy schedule. Take advantage of your childrens’ current availability and set up a time to get their pearly whites cleaned and evaluated.
 
2. Get Back-to-School savings at the dentist
 
Looking for savings at the dentist on the checkups and cleanings you just scheduled for your family? Find out if your dentist accepts one of DentalPlans.com’s more than 30 discount dental plans. If so, you’re in luck. You could save 10% to 60% on most dental care services throughout the year. Click here to check for plans in your area or that your dentist accepts.
 
 
3. Start the year with reinforced habits
 
Summer is the time for relaxation, but as the school year rolls around, it’s a good time to make sure that your kids’ dental care practices didn’t suffer during the summer months. Take the time to check in on morning and evening brushing sessions and set the tone for a year of healthy dental care practices in your home.
 
4. Make a goal for the year
 
You help your kids succeed in school by making goals, why not extend this success system to your childrens’dental health? Whether the goal is to brush twice a day or to have a perfect or improved mid-year checkup, give your kids something to work toward and their efforts may improve.
 
5. Set up a reward system
 
What happens after your kids improve their dental health habits or get a perfect or improved dental checkup? Creating a reward system in your household may help make dental health a little more fun for your kids. And it may also help brighten those smiles you love so much.
 
6. Pack healthy foods
 
A healthy diet is crucial to a healthy smile. Do you pack your kids’ lunches? If so, help them smile bright by packing foods that clean and refresh their teeth.
