I was looking to review items for back to school. I was given the opportunity to review dental items. I thought this was a good idea as a lot of us don't think of dental products for our kids book bags for back to school. These items are perfect for back to school. I received a Colgate 360 toothbrush, Colgate total toothbrush, floss, total gard.


Celebrate after spending the summer in warm weather and sunshine, heading back to school and sitting in a classroom can be a drag. By finding little things to celebrate, such as losing a tooth, a day can brighten up quickly. When a tooth is lost, create a tooth fairy mailbox or pass out a tooth fairy certificate at school to ensure this milestone is celebrated.


Stay healthy- school days can be long for students and by mid afternoon, they may need some extra energy to finish that math lesson. Teachers: send homes healthy snack list to parents or add healthy snacks to a bin in the classroom to ensure students are energized in a healthy way. Some snacks to think about are fruit, vegetable and cheese. Cheese is especially good for your child's teeth because it neutralizes acids. Acidic items, such as fruit juices and sodS, should be avoided since they allow the bacteria in plaque to produce more acid.
Stay organized- for parents, heading back to school can be a busy time full of sport practices, carpools and early mornings with late evenings. Keep your family organized by placing all important dental and doctor appointments with practice schedules on a large calendar the whole family has access to. Color code for each child for extra organization.

Make lists- chances are when heading back to school many purchases will need to be made. Be smart about your purchases and don't forget items such as, healthy snacks, dental items to pack in a back pack for use after lunch or snack time, mouth guards for safety and classroom supplies.
