Children’s Books to Support Dental Health Week
(and you’ll also need a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and a dentist!)
It’s Australian Dental Association’s Dental Health Week 2014 in Australia very soon (August 4-10) so it’s timely that we should have Dr Amy Daley of East Brisbane Dentists to talk to us about a few oral health related issues! The Australian Dental Association website has some great resources for parents and teachers here.
#dentalhealthweek and #sugarbandits are the official hashtags of Dental Week and I do so love a hashtag!
Cleaning your teeth before bed is as important as reading your books before bed in this house. The girls have had a variety of fab toothbrushes (mostly courtesy of Aunty Amy – who also buys the best dresses under the sun) and their current favourites are the ones which sing a song for the time they are to brush for. In the bathroom we also have PudStar’s ‘Princess with Cavities’ painting (above) which I do rather love. What child paints a princess then adds cavities?
Dr Amy Daley has been kind enough to write blog posts on the following topics for us. Click on each title to see her posts.
and I have a post all about tooth fairy related books…cause everyone loves the tooth fairy!
How will you be celebrating Dental Health Week 2014 in your home, school, kindergarten or dental surgery?
And this is NOT one for Dental Health Week and encouraging your child to go to the dentist AT ALL…but jeepers creepers it’s funny…the dentists out there may (or may not!) enjoy this one! Click on cover to see details and purchase.
