Brush, Book, Bed – The Best Bedtime Routine
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Reach Out and Read in North Carolina and South Carolina is participating in oral health initiatives and integrating books and conversations about the importance of life long oral health into ROR well-child visits.
During regular wellness check-ups at these participating locations, children are now given brand-new, age-appropriate books that share stories about establishing and maintaining oral health.
Not only do these conversations help promote life-long oral health habits, they continue to improve parent and child bonding around creating routines of reading aloud together…and brushing!
Here’s a message from Dr. Blakely Amati, Prisma Health Center for Pediatric Medicine and SC lead for the Carolinas Collaborative.
