Why Brush Daily?

Caring for a child’s mouth can be a challenge, but it is important to make brushing part of their daily routine from an early age; brushing twice a day is a simple step to help keep those baby teeth clean and healthy and to avoid cavities – a good thing when you consider that they can remain until kids are 13 or 14!

Parents, caregivers, and teachers can challenge children to make dental care part of their routine by brushing twice daily for a full month and tracking their progress on the printable calendar below.

BCDA's month-long contest promotes good dental health habits by:

  • teaching them about the importance of daily dental care
  • challenging them to brush (and floss!) twice daily for a full month and
  • tracking their progress on a printable Brush2Win calendar.

Brushing twice a day is a simple step to help keep teeth clean and healthy and avoid cavities.
