LISTERINE SMART RINSE Sweet Smart Oral Care Challenge

*LISTERINE SMART RINSE Sweet Smart Oral Care Challenge*

"For my kids & I were are pledging to take the Listerine Smart Rinse Sweet Smart Challenge by making sure we brush, floss and Smart Rinse twice a day."
We plan on making this a competition and whoever earns the most stars on a Challenge Calendar Earns an activity of their choosing.

Here are some valuable information and ideas on how to get your kids excited to brush their teeth.

Oral disease has become the #1 chronic childhood disease. Dental disease can lead to serious illnesses and affects a child’s overall well-being.  A child in pain can’t eat the nutritious foods that are so important for their growth and development.

Join Trick or Treat for America’s ToothFairy. Just set up a virtual page for Halloween, invite friends and family to join you, and take on the opportunity to help raise money to care for a child in need.

Brushing doesn’t do it alone. We have to brush, floss and rinse with a post-brushing mouthrinse like LISTERINE SMART RINSE.  It’s an essential combination that will keep your child’s teeth and mouth healthy and prevent childhood cavities.

A fluoride-based rinse like LISTERINE SMART RINSE provides 12-hour cavity protection and strengthens teeth 99% better than brushing alone. 

Tips for getting kids to practice good oral hygiene:
REACH® Kids 

LISTERINE® SMART RINSE®Parents should brush their children’s teeth until age eight to demonstrate good brushing behavior.

You can make brushing into a game – make funny faces, play music, use a calendar and give a star for every day that your child brushes without prodding.

On average, brushing should last two minutes and rinsing 60 seconds {which is about the length of a song}.  *DR. KANETA LOTT, pediatric dentist

For all purchases of LISTERINE SMART RINSE at Walmart, you can download a song that your kids can brush/rinse to. Find songs at www.disney.com/phineasandferbmusic or www.barbie.com/listerinekids.

This October, LISTERINE is teaming up with America’s ToothFairy for the third year to eliminate pediatric oral disease and promote overall health and well-being for under served children.
