It’s always tough for families to make that transition from summer break to a new school year.

One of the reasons for that is getting kids back into the early-to-bed and early-to-rise routine.

If you’re a parent with young children at home, it’s especially challenging to get them ready for school in the morning when they’re still at an age when they try to always negotiate their way out of brushing their teeth.

We want to make it easier to send your kids to school with healthy smiles this year! Make your family’s oral hygiene routine less stressful by teaching your kids why brushing their teeth is so important.

Start by sharing this video with them that explains what happens when your teeth and gums aren’t cleaned each day.

Then be sure to bring your family in for back-to-school dental cleanings and exams so they start the new semester off on the right foot.
