The habits we begin as children are the ones we tend to follow throughout life. Introducing children to the basics of oral health early on can create a solid foundation for taking care of their teeth over time.
Using fun and interactive dental lesson plans will help your child have a positive view of dental care.
Children in Kindergarten tend to become more aware of the world around them. Its important to encourage awareness and curiosity during this time. Every experience at this age is a learning experience that can form and change a child’s habits and awareness.
For these reasons, it is important to take time to use dental lesson plans specifically for kindergartners to start their knowledge about oral health.
A few important topics to cover in dental lesson plans for kindergartners are:
There are also a variety of ways to make learning about dental health care fun and memorable for kids such as:
It’s important to be honest during these discussions and encourage children to not fear asking dental hygiene questions. This can help encourage them to take an active role in the well-being of their oral health.
At Kool Smiles, we believe in the importance of early preventative dental care and education. Kool Smiles cares and believes in our community and educational leaders. That’s why we have teamed up with several local schools, daycare centers, and community organizations to provide free oral health screenings and supplies.
We also offer free dental lesson plans and toothbrushes to classrooms nationwide during National Children’s Dental Health Care month in February and throughout the year. You can also access our previous year’s dental lesson plans and educational activity booklet at any time.
