It’s not easy being a kid, especially when parents ask them to do things like eat vegetables, clean their room and brush their teeth!
Could anything be worse? Maybe. How about cavities?
Recent studies indicate that over 40% of kids will have a cavity by the time they enter kindergarten and 21% of kids between 6 to 11 will have a cavity in their permanent teeth! So, what’s a kid (and their parent!) to do?
Find an incentive (or bribe)! In honor of National Children’s Dental Health month, North Seattle Dental is here to help kids, and their parents, battle those pesky sugar bugs that are creating more cavities than ever.
We’re offering a little additional incentive to kids throughout the Seattle area by kicking off the Kids Cavity Free Club!
How it Works!
Schedule your child for a teeth cleaning and dental exam during the month of February. Every “kid” – those of you between 2 and 18 – who is declared cavity FREE will be entered into a drawing for a gift card:
- $25 Toys R Us Gift Card for kids between 1 and 12!
- $25 Amazon Gift Card for kids between 13 and 18!
The first Cavity Free Drawing will be February 28th! Can’t make it in February? No worries! Your kid will have plenty of other chances to win (besides having cavity-free teeth)! We have additional drawings throughout the year!
While a free gift card might be a great incentive to stay mindful about cavities, here are some other tips to help your kids stay cavity free!
