Concerns about an oral health crisis in children are prompting better education of parents and children on how to instill good dental habits.

Key takeaways:

– Children should understand the importance of a good oral care routine as well as the role sugar plays in tooth decay.
– Parents can set a good example by regularly brushing their teeth with fluoride toothpaste.
– Anxiety about visits to the dentist can be alleviated by explaining what will happen and taking a favourite toy along.

“Children will understand the importance of tooth brushing if they see their parents taking care of their teeth.”
