Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth

Teeth. Most of us have 'em and we want to keep 'em right? Well in order to do so we need to take good care of them starting early! 

At the July Utah County Aspire Parent Group, we had the privilege of listening to a presentation  from the Utah Department of Health on Pediatric Dental Hygiene. They have created a curriculum on awareness and prevention and are giving presentations all over the state to make sure kids are having healthy teeth. Among the great advice that was shared, Stephanie included a great little tip that is easy to remember and can help parents and care givers help keep their kids teeth health, both when their kids are young and as they grow into their adult teeth. 

Pop at parties
Milk at meals
Water whenever
Juice just once a day

Try this out and let us know what works best for you! Here are links to a few other blog posts on oral health:

It is very important to keep your baby's teeth healthy and strong even when they are young, so that when their adult teeth come in, they will already be in the habit of cleaning on their own and their gums will be better prepared to keep their teeth healthy!
