todder love brushing

Hello friends! I’m the Tooth Fairy, and Dr. Schur has graciously given me the opportunity to take over his Bellevue orthodontics blog today! 

Children's dental health month Bellevue orthodontist
February is my favorite month of the year ‐ it’s Children’s Dental Health Month! I LOVE teaching parents and kids how to keep their teeth strong and healthy. Today, I’m going to share a few top tips I’ve gathered over the years to help teach your toddler to LOVE to brush his or her teeth. 

1. Make it fun!

Find fun sing‐along videos and songs to play during brush time. Here’s one of my favorites: Sesame Street — Brushy Brush

2. Let your toddler choose his or her own toothbrush!

The oral care aisles at local drug stores are packed FULL of princesses, superheroes, and your child’s favorite characters. Make it an event! Take your little one to the aisle and let them choose their very OWN toothbrush ‐ this will make brush time even more personal, special, and fun!

3. There’s an app for that. 

Download these fun apps and before you know it, your kids might be reminding YOU that it’s time for them to brush their teeth! Oral‐B Disney Magic Timer™,  Brush DJ, & Toothsavers Brushing Game.

4. Download a FREE (Bellevue orthodontist approved) Tooth Fairy Receipt PDF from your 

Bellevue orthodontist Dr. Jeffrey Schur and the team at Schur Orthodontics are happy to share a FREE downloadable Tooth Fairy Receipt! Download it here.
It’s never too early to help your kids develop good hygiene habits, which will set them up for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums! Oh, and did I mention that February 28th is National Tooth Fairy Day
I’d like to thank Dr. Schur for letting me take over the blog for the day ‐ remember to call your dentist to schedule dental checkups for the entire family!
