Establishing a healthy brushing habit in your child early can make a world of difference in the amount of dental pain they’ll experience in their future. Similarly, it will save you countless miserable trips to the dentist’s office. Ultimately, for parents, it’s about being the driving force behind a habit that can transcend just childhood.
