National Children’s Dental Health Month

Published by Brian Homann DDS

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! Every February, the American Dental Association encourages adults, caretakers, teachers and other healthcare providers to step in and emphasize the importance of oral health. In honor of this important month, our dentist in Elk Grove Village wants to highlight some simple ways that you can help keep your children’s oral health interesting and exciting for them.

Lead by Example

Your kids look up to you in many ways, so why shouldn’t they be inspired by your oral health habits as well? Instead of telling your kids to brush and floss on their own, why not do it at the same time as them so it becomes a bonding experience? The time spent on oral health will quickly become a highlight of both of your days if you make it a family experience.

Incentivize Them

Nothing will motivate a child like an incentive. Talk with your kids and establish a realistic goal about oral health. For example, tell them if they brush their teeth twice a day for two weeks, they will get treated to dinner at their favorite restaurant. You can also treat them to rewards like going to a movie, getting ice cream or buying them a new toy.

Schedule Regular Dental Visits

Establish the importance of oral health with your child as soon as you can. One way to do this is by scheduling regular visits with our dentist in Elk Grove Village. You and your family members should be visiting the dentist at least once every six months.

Encourage healthy oral health habits for your family not only in February, but every month! Contact our team to schedule a dental cleaning.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
