Go On A Shopping Trip Together
Want your family to get excited about smile care? You may want to head out on a special shopping trip with the whole crew! Why is this important? Well, first, shopping is fun. Next, when you get everyone involved in the process of choosing a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, etc., it makes it special. It makes it fun. It makes it something you can easily infuse with humor and excitement. Everyone then gets to go home and use their new, special items!
Set A Goal And A Family Reward
A very easy way to make smile care more exciting for your family is to come up with a system that includes a goal and then a reward. Maybe you have a chart that includes a week (or a month) of consistent brushing and flossing. When the week is up and everyone has checked off their daily dental hygiene, there’s a reward! Depending on the ages of your kids, it could be a sticker, a trip to the park, special dinner, etc. Whatever works!
