Let's start with home basics:
Your child will do what you do. You brush. They brush. You floss. They floss. By allowing your child to see you brush and floss they will want to have their own toothbrush.
Next, see a dentist twice a year and have your child's teeth examined and cleaned. Radiographs may be necessary and also help better diagnose. Bringing your child to a dentist at an early age helps reduce your child's chances of developing tooth decay and also serve as time to help educate yourself on the best oral helath practices for your little one.
