It can be highly beneficial when children are young to help them understand why oral health is so important. Doing so sets them up for a lifetime of good oral hygiene and fewer oral health problems. The children’s dentists of Azarko Dental Group believe that oral health can and should be fun for kids, which is why we've collected some fun jokes, trivia, and games that you can use to get your child excited about taking care of their teeth.
Oral Health Jokes & Trivia
Jokes are a great way to approach any topic, especially with children. Courtesy of the Canadian Dental Association, here are a few jokes that you can use to break the ice:
Q: What did the vampire say after the dentist finished checking his teeth?
A: Fang you very much!
Q: Why did the male deer visit the orthodontist?
A: He wanted to get his buck teeth fixed!
Q: When the dentist went to the fair, what did he like even better than the roller coaster?
A: The fluor "ride"!
Now that you've got your child interested, you can intrigue them even further with these fun toothy tidbits about animals:
- Did you know that an elephant's tooth can weigh about as much as a jug of milk?
- Tiny snails can have thousands of tiny teeth, while some big giant whales don't even have teeth!
