Apple Dental’s Daycare Program
At Apple Dental, we believe “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, Benjamin Franklin. We actively practice this philosophy by going out into the community to educate kids about oral health at daycares and primary schools. Kids are important to us and as such we are passionate about educating kids at an early age and their parents about proper oral care. We want the kids in our community to have strong healthy teeth and beautiful smiles for a lifetime!
Studies have shown that children pick up their oral habits at early age and that they are hard to break once established. The goal of our presentation is for children to know the importance of oral care and help them learn and practice today for a lifetime of good dental practices. We are surprised to see how many kids do not know about flossing, length of time to brush or the importance of regular dental visits.
During our 20-30 minute presentation, the kids met DINO the dinosaur and learn how to brush and floss his teeth just like their own. We talk about healthy versus unhealthy snacks, sugar bugs and cavities using our magnetic tooth board. We also teach them the RULE of TWO to help them remember the basics of good oral habits. In addition every child receives a goodie bag to take home filled with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss pick, coloring sheet to help reinforce good snacks, an information sheet for the parents and of course an APPLE!
