Deck the halls with healthy smiles! The holiday season is upon us, and at KIDS, we’re celebrating with a special 12 Days of Dental Health countdown. Each day leading up to Christmas, we’ll be unwrapping a new dental health tip to keep your smiles merry and bright. Plus, a quick note: KIDS will be spreading holiday cheer from December 22nd, 2023, and will reopen on January 8th, 2024. Now, let the countdown begin!
Day 1: Jingle All the Way to Good Oral Hygiene!
Start the countdown with the basics! Remember to jingle all the way to good oral health by brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. A healthy smile is the best ornament you can wear!*
Day 2: Mistletoe and Flossing Go Hand in Hand
*Hang the mistletoe and don’t forget to floss! Mistletoe and flossing both bring loved ones closer. Keep those spaces between your teeth as clean as the holiday spirit.*
Day 3: Sleigh Bells and Dental Checkups
On the third day, schedule your sleigh ride to KIDS for a checkup. Regular dental checkups keep your smile in top-notch condition. Don’t wait until the new year—book your appointment now!
Day 4: Nutcracker-Safe Snacking
Snack smart with a nod to the Nutcracker! Choose healthy snacks like nuts, cheese, and crunchy fruits to keep your teeth strong and your taste buds delighted.
Day 5: Frosty the Enamel-Friendly Snowman
Protect your enamel just like Frosty guards his snowy exterior. Opt for enamel-friendly toothpaste to keep your teeth strong and resilient against the winter chill.

Channel your inner elf and wrap up your toothbrush in festive colours. A cheerful toothbrush is a great way to add a touch of holiday spirit to your daily oral care routine.

Seven swans may be swimming, but you can sip smartly. Choose water over sugary beverages to stay hydrated and keep your smile radiant.
