  • Ensure your child brushes for two minutes first thing in the morning before breakfast and last thing at night. Its advised that children up to the age of 9 should be assisted with their brushing.

  • Limit when your child has sweets. Saving sweet treats for meal times will reduce the amount of time your child’s teeth are under an acid attack.
