Over the Christmas period routines are all over the place!

There’s lots of snacking and special treats so it’s important not to forget the kids’ oral health.

It’s recommended you brush your children’s teeth twice a day for optimal oral health. Getting your child settled into this routine can be difficult, it’s important to persevere especially with all the sugary treats around the Christmas period.

We’ve designed these FREE downloadable Christmas brushing charts for you to use at home. There are three to choose from all designed with different age groups and routine levels in mind. Check them out below!

Reward Good Habits

Brushing charts are great tool to make teeth brushing fun for kids. It can be the incentive needed to make brushing twice a day less of a chore, especially for reluctant kids.

Make sure to praise your children during brushing and while they colour in the spaces on their chart. The more fun and rewarding the process, the more likely the routine is to continue.

Try offering a small reward or prize when they complete their chart. There is no need to make this an expensive exercise. It could be their favourite meal for dinner; a family picnic at the beach; or maybe a small lego or toy (try picking something that’s collectable so they can build upon it as they keep up their brushing).

On this occasion the dentist Natalie was very good, explained clearly why specialist surgery was required. The standout however, was Bec the admin. Officer, who went over and above to get me an urgent appt. the next day. She was amazing & I very much appreciated her assistance.

I've just called to make an appoint with Dr Kapil and have learnt he is no longer doing general dental work. Sadly after 20 years I need to find a new dentist. He will be hard to replace....
