It's National Children's Dental Health Month!

In honor of February being National Children's Dental Health Month, our dental clinic in Richland would like to give you a few tips for making taking care of your teeth fun for your children. Central Ozarks Medical Center understands that brushing your teeth may not sound like the most fun thing to for your little ones, but there are things you can do that can make your kids more excited about taking care of their teeth. If you are looking for a new dentist for your kids because you are unsatisfied with your current dentist, consider the COMC Richland Dental Center. Just call 573.765.2510 to make your first appointment for your kids.



Reward your children for brushing their teeth.
Motivate your kids to want to brush their teeth by rewarding them each time. It can be something as simple as a sticker of their favorite cartoon or a quarter added to their piggy bank. As long as your child feels like they are getting something fun for brushing their teeth, odds are they will be more excited about it than just being told to go brush their teeth or else.

Sing a song while they brush their teeth.
You can make this a fun, creative song you come up with that your kid can look forward to each time they brush their teeth. It can be your own special teeth brushing song for your kiddos. It doesn't have to be anything too wordy or extravagant, just something simple that gets your kids excited about taking care of their teeth.

Tell your child they can brush your teeth if they brush their own first. 
How funny do you think your little one would find it if they got to brush their mom or dads teeth for them - HILARIOUS. This sounds like a pretty fair trade-off for getting your little one to take care of their chompers.

Let your child buy a NEW toothbrush.
Take your kid to the store with you and let them pick out their very own toothbrush. They make all kinds of fun and colorful toothbrushes for kids these days. Perhaps choosing a new and colorful toothbrush will get your kid more excited about taking care of their teeth because they get to use a toothbrush they got to pick out themselves.



The Richland Dental Center is Here for Your Kiddos!


We know how tough getting your kid to the dentist can be. Many children fear the dentist, but Central Ozarks Medical Center brings the FUN and kindness your kids have been hoping to see.
