Hi, I'm Dr. Steven Roth from SmilesNY in New York City, where I am a cosmetic dentist. And today we're going to discuss how to teach dental hygiene habits to children in the first grade. The most important thing you can do for the child is show them how to keep their mouths clean. But it's very important to also discuss with them how it's important not to swallow the toothpaste and to make a fun game out of learning how to brush their teeth. We're going to concentrate on making circular strokes away from the gum line. And show them how to hold the toothbrush. And then how to spit everything out at the end and use water to make it nice and clean. My name is Dr. Steven Roth, and today we discussed how to teach dental hygiene habits to first graders.
