Dental Health and Hygiene

Dental Health and Hygiene

I have always liked to closely follow up the health theme with dental health. Dental health is such an important topic at this age as the kids are slowly beginning to lose their baby teeth and their adult teeth grown in. Dental health week included whole group discussions on ways to take care of our teeth. The main educational goal of the week was to have the students memorize “The Four Ways to Keep Our Teeth Healthy.” 1. Brush your teeth every day 2.)Floss your teeth everyday 3. Eat fruits and vegetables and 4. Visit the dentist twice a year.
We also learned a new song about brushing our teeth - Sung to Oh my darling Clementine
 Brush your front teeth Brush your back teeth
Brush the bottom and the top
If you brush them each and everyday
Then your smile will never stop

We practiced brushing our teeth and sent the kids home with a new tooth brush at the end of the week. And we are very excited to get a visit from Dentist this up coming week. Here is a little look at the crafts we made during dental health week.

That is a little look at our Dental Health Week. Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly, are best established when an individual is young. As a child, the establishing of the dental routine, including the act of brushing and flossing, must be facilitated and performed by the parent. A couple of good tips for parents are to make sure that one is positive about the importance of dental care and oral hygiene

  2. Good dental care begins with your own efforts to maintain an appropriate regimen of dental hygiene. You should also see your dentist on a regular basis for exams and cleanings.

  7. It’s really best to teach the kids about dental health and hygiene at the very young age, as it would develop into a good habit as they grow up. At the very least, it lessens their chances of having bad teeth due to cavities. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
