Getting Kids Excited About Dental Health

Posted on May 15th, 2018 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

After a long day, you and your child might not make it a priority to brush his or her teeth. If this is the case for you, our Lincoln Park dentist wants to help! Instead of seeing dental health as a chore, try doing what you can to make it a rewarding experience for both yourself and your child.

Make it a Family Activity

Your child will be more likely to get excited about oral health if he or she feels like they aren’t in it alone. Lead by example; brush and floss with them instead of solely assisting them. If other family members are home, try including them in this routine as well. Not only will your mouths benefit, but it also serves as good bonding time.

Play Music

Queue up your child’s favorite movie soundtrack and play that while he or she is brushing. This will help make the time go faster for them and get them excited about dental health. You can also prompt them to brush during the entire duration of their favorite song. A built-in timer as well as entertainment!

Special Toothbrush and Toothpaste

Next time you’re at our Lincoln Park dentist, make sure to ask us about our special kids’ dental health supplies, as it will make your child more excited about brushing. There are also special flavors of toothpaste that are effective as well as enjoyable for your child.
Brushing and flossing should be something both you and your child enjoy! Start dental health habits early and you’ll help set your child up for a lifetime of success. Contact our Lincoln Park dentist today to set up your child’s next appointment.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
