The American Dental Association has teamed up with Hermey the Elf to help kids (and their parents) maintain optimal oral health this Holiday Season. You may remember Hermey as the elf in the classic TV special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer who preferred studying teeth to making toys. It is this devotion to oral health that makes Hermey the perfect character to inspire kids keep teeth clean both during the holidays and throughout the year.
Garner, North Carolina family dentist Dr. Adam Moore encourages parents to assist young children in developing good oral habits. During your routine visits to our office he would be happy to discuss age-appropriate teaching tools that can help you more effectively instruct your children. In the meantime, check out Hermey’s Healthy Teeth Checklist from the ADA for a fun and simple way to encourage children to take charge of their dental care.
Hermey’s suggestions include brushing twice a day, eating healthy snacks, and wearing a mouthguard when playing sports. Dr. Moore would add flossing at least once daily to this list for older children, adolescents, and adults.
