Happy Tooth Dental Health Printable Activity Pack

Happy Tooth Dental Health Printable Activity Pack

February is Children’s Dental Health Month and the perfect time to focus on teaching your kiddos about good dental habits and maintaining healthy smiles. To help make learning fun, we've put together this printable activity pack—a super helpful and engaging resource for parents and teachers.

Why is dental health so important for kids?

Dental health and overall health are directly and intricately linked. Poor oral care can lead to many other (and more serious) issues, like pain, illness, and more. Did you know that tooth decay is the most prevalent chronic illness for kids and the top reason kids miss school?

How can I make my kids' teeth healthy?

The key to maintaining healthy teeth is teaching good habits as early as possible. Habits like brushing, flossing, regular dental visits, and a balanced diet are the key to oral care. 

How do you explain oral health to a child?

The best way to explain oral health to kiddos is to make it fun (that's where we come in)! We've put together a printable activity pack that covers these important topics:

  • How to brush and floss your teeth
  • How often to brush
  • What happens at the dentist
  • Healthy and unhealthy food for teeth
