Ontario Curriculum Connections: 

Oral health is a matter that concerns all of us. There have been more cases reported of poor oral health in young children than ever before. It is our duty, as the adults in young children's lives, to teach them how to brush their teeth properly. The Tooth Time app does exactly that, and helps parents make this sometimes difficult chore not only easier, but way more fun, too!

At-Home Activities: 
  • Use the Tooth Time app twice a day; once in the morning and once at night.
  • Encourage your child to place a sticker on his/her sticker chart after every brush!
  • Encourage your child to send their sticker chart to someone who would be impressed; like Grandpa, an aunt, or even the dentist!
  • Share this app with friends and family!
