June is Oral Health Month

There are many resources here for keeping your child(rens) smile healthy and bright… brushing calendars, tips for brushing toddlers teeth, cutting back on sugary snacks, activity sheets and more! These links are all sponsored by the ADA (American Dental Association)!

School may be out for summer, but your child’s best teacher is working year-round: You!

Leading by example — especially when it comes to establishing healthy habits like brushing, cleaning between your teeth and seeing your dentist — can make a big difference in the health and happiness of your entire family.

That’s why we are celebrating Oral Health Month: Share More Time, Share More Smiles with Colgate this June. Here are two ways you can join in and make a difference:

  1. Watch, read, play and share the resources below with your entire family. Their smiles will thank you!
  2. Share your smile! Snap a photo of you and your family taking care of your teeth. (We’d love to see you brushing together, flossing as a family and making your regular dental visits a special day.) Then, share it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+ using #TimetoSmile. Colgate will donate $1 (up to $40,000) to Give Kids A Smile, a program of the ADA Foundation that provides dental health care to underserved children. Camera shy? Liking or sharing other people’s posts counts too!
