Do your kids forget to brush every so often, especially when you’re too busy or tired to remind them? Let them know that the perfect opportunity for a clean slate is coming up this Friday, November 1 – National Brush Day!

In acknowledgement of National Brush Day, encourage the whole family to brush for a full two minutes, morning and night.

2min2x.org offers a free brushing checklist you can print from their website, complete with spaces to track daily brushing and a space to come up with weekly rewards.
