Establishing new family rituals for brushing teeth is an excellent way to make brushing and bedtime oral health preparation easier! Parents often tell us, “I let my daughter brush my teeth sometimes, so she will let me brush hers without argument.” Still others create nightly rituals by suggesting, “You brush for a while, then I’ll brush for a while!’”

To help establish new brushing rituals, MNOHP has created and identified several lively music videos that children can watch to make brushing a more stress-free part of daily living. Simply click on any of these links and share them with children and families. By using these new tools, we can all create bigger smiles and learn new tunes to sing together at bedtime!
