Dental health is an important aspect that we should keep in mind. This is especially true for children, as their teeth are still developing and require extra care. To make dental health fun and easy, I have created a set of Dental Health Worksheets for 1st Grade.
For more printables and activities, check out my list of Dental Health Activities for Kids!
These dental pages are designed to introduce children in first grade to dental health practices and help them understand the importance of taking care of their teeth. They are packed with educational and interactive activities that will make learning about dental health a breeze!

What are 10 things to keep your teeth healthy?
Good dental health practices are essential to prevent tooth decay and gum diseases. Here are ten things to keep your teeth healthy:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Floss every day to remove food particles and plaque.
- Use mouthwash to kill harmful bacteria and freshen your breath.
- Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
- Avoid smoking and tobacco use since they can cause gum disease and stain your teeth.
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and replace it every three to four months.
- Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
- Wear a mouth guard during sports activities to prevent teeth injuries.
