Did you know that more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental-related problems?
Parents and caregivers can help prevent lost school days by teaching their children to follow the 2-2-2 rule.
The 2-2-2 rule is easy to follow and includes three simple steps:
- Visit the dentist two times each year.
- Brush and floss your teeth two times each day.
- Brush your teeth for two whole minutes.
If you’re looking for a simple, effective way to help your child achieve a lifetime of healthy smiles, the 2-2-2 rule can help!
The pediatric dentistry experts at Pediatric Dentistry of Valley Stream can also help. If it’s time to schedule your child’s first dental visit or 6-month check-up and cleaning, contact us to request an appointment.
