Key takeaways:

– Encourage a fun, regular oral care routine by letting them choose their own toothbrush and brushing their teeth to a favourite song.

– Teach your child about the damaging effects of sugar to help them understand why sugary snacks and drinks need to be limited.

– Take your child for regular checkups at the dentist from a very early age to ensure any problems are spotted early.
