Happy Father’s Day!

If you’re the man of the house, dental health is probably the last thing on your priority list. Statistically, if you’re a man of a certain age, you probably don’t brush your teeth after every meal and only stand half a chance of brushing twice a day. Even on Father’s Day, there are usually a ton of regular life responsibilities that won’t go away. There are a few key reasons, though, why every dad should keep their teeth in mind this Father’s day.

Did you know that 95 percent of oral cancer diagnoses occur in those over 40 years of age? This is a particular concern for men, who are less likely to follow a suggested oral hygiene routine each day, but they’re also less likely to seek preventative dental care and only book an appointment if there’s trouble. But did you also know that a dad’s influence over their children in more prominent in dental routies than their mom?

As an influencer in the household, it falls on dear old dad to brush twice, floss once, and get thee to your dentist twice a year. Your children’s teeth could tangibly be influenced! Let’s face it–of all the responsibilities you have as a dad or a head of the household, brushing your teeth on the regular is a pretty easy fix. Perhaps the best news this June? You’ve got a solid partner in keeping you kids’ mouths healthy. A visit to The Greatest Smiles on Earth is carefully orchestrated to enhance the experience of your child. We are proud to be your partner in keeping your children’s smiles healthy. We’ve got your back. Happy Father’s Day!
