Will the Easter Bunny be paying your dental bills this year?

This giveaway has now closed.
Congrats to Stephanie that said...
very useful after a day of eating sweets -- thanks!

Another holiday.....Another reason to shop for candy, right?
Sure those peeps and chocolate easter bunny candies are quiet tasty but they can also be quiet expensive in the longer run.
Just open up and say "CAVITY" !
Did you know that Easter has actually risen in the top-selling candy holiday hierarchy over the years, second only to Halloween? In fact, according to the National Retail Federation, consumers are expected to spend more than $2 billion on candy alone this year.

Before you load that basket up with "yummies", be sure to educate yourself and your children on tooth decay.

tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease– five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever


The following video was taken at a blogger event in New York at fun, kid-friendly venue and features some great information from Dr. Laura Jana, M.D., author and founder of Practical Parenting Consulting, LLC – she is also mother of three:



Oral-B Stages Tips to Make Brushing Fun
Brush your teeth with your child to set a good example. This also helps your child to learn by watching and imitating you.
Choose toothbrushes and toothpaste with popular kids’ characters, like Oral-B Stages, to help establish positive oral care routines with familiar friends like Winnie the Pooh or Disney Princesses.
Sing your child’s favorite song, such as “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” for two minutes to encourage brushing for the dentist-recommended time. For older children, play a song from their favorite pop singer for two minutes.
Making your child’s brushing routine fun will encourage proper habits early and help prevent oral care issues later in life.
For more information please visit, www.oralb.com/kidscare.

**
And since the kiddos should be brushing regularly at ALL TIMES and not just Easter, I have a special giveaway for you!
I have one awesome ORAL B prize pack for one lucky family.
Contents include a variety of Oral B Stages products :

Oral B Stages baby tooth & gum cleanser
Oral B Stages berry bubble anticavity toothpaste
(1) Oral B Stages 1 toothbrush
(1) Oral B Stages 2 toothbrush
(1) Oral B Stages 3 toothbrush
(1) Oral B Stages 4 toothbrush
All you need to do is leave me a comment to be entered.
*I would also appreciate it if you viewed the youtube clip above.*
This giveaway will end on Saturday, April 18th and a winner will be announced.

Actually this year, we bought the kids more toys and clothes instead of a bunch of candy. We even told the grandparents NO CANDY! My husband and I have both undergone a lot of dental work in the last two years and we are only in our early thirties. We don't want our children having the same trouble with their teeth. Anyhow, I would love to win these toothbrushes and paste. We have three children, 8, 6, and 2, and are always in need of dental products for them.

Kelly F on April 12, 2009 at 2:54 PM said...

These would be perfect for my nephew. He just got old enough to start brushing his teeth and since the novelty hasn't worn off yet, he gets super excited every night :)

I am shocked by the stat that 51 million school hours are lost annually because of dental issues. I have a one year old who LOVES his toothbrush and a 4 year old as well. They would love this set (as would I!).

Wendy O on April 12, 2009 at 8:11 PM said...

What a great giveaway. My kids love brushing their teeth and we use the before wash which shows them where they need to focus on and an anticavity mouthwash afterwards. They love it but the $$ adds up so some free paste and brushes would be great!

What a fabulous idea. Dental health is so important and it's crucial to teach kids to brush properly when they're little. I want to win these for a friend's kids who need a little encouragement to brush, but since I received Easter treats from both our sets of parents, I understand how much sugar is out there at Easter!
