Hurst Pediatric Dentistry has released a free tip sheet to help parents get their children brushing and flossing, an essential part of a good oral care routine. The full list of tips can be found on the company’s website,

Some of the most effective tips include:

Silly songs make tooth brushing fun – The more time your child spends brushing, the less likely they will develop cavities. Finding silly songs to brush their teeth by may help to encourage the reluctant brusher. Music not only makes brushing and flossing fun, it makes work light. What is seen as a chore often becomes seen as a game.

Brushing two minutes two times a day is the goal. – To get adequate brush time in, use videos with songs and timers to keep kids brushing. Most kid videos about toothbrushing are about two minutes long, but beware of longer videos to avoid excessive brush time.

Silly songs provide educational benefits – Not only do silly toothbrushing songs keep kids engaged in dental care, they educate them on colors, numbers, letters, directions, shapes, and more.

When asked about the reasons behind the tip sheet, Dr. Joby Hurst, Owner of Hurst Pediatric Dentistry, said,

“We hear from families all the time about creative ways they get their kids to brush and floss their teeth. Musical inspiration is almost always mentioned, so we wanted to put together an easily accessible list of silly toothbrushing songs that kids can brush their teeth by as a resource for parents who are challenged to get their children to participate in good dental habits on a consistent basis.”

Not only does utilizing silly songs make dental care fun, it helps to establish a care routine that is anticipated by children. Once established, parents can anticipate seeing their kids run to the bathroom to grab their brush and paste to start brushing at the mere click of a play button on a cell phone or computer. As an added benefit, setting up routines at an early age leads to good dental hygiene throughout childrens’ lives.

The tip sheet is available for free and parents are encouraged to share the tips with others who find the information useful. Any questions can be answered by going to the company website, and filling out the contact form there.
