Video: Tips for Your Pearly Whites!

It can be difficult for families to maintain a balanced lifestyle during the long summer months filled with vacations, camps and sweet treats. That's why back-to-school is a great time to re-establish a daily routine focused on healthy habits, such as proper brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups, all of which will help prevent cavities and gum disease.

Actress and celebrity mom Jennie Garth, along with dentist Dr. Jennifer Salzer, shares their tips on maintaining good oral care habits in kids of all ages.

Jennie Garth, with daughters ranging in age from five to 14 years old, talks about her personal experiences as a mom, whether it is helping tiny tots hold a toothbrush for the first time or encouraging a tween to embrace their braces and have confidence in their smile.

As a dentist and orthodontist, Dr. Salzer spends a lot of time looking into kids' mouths; she's also a mom of four, so she knows first-hand how hard it can be for any parent to instill healthy habits and can share her tricks of the trade. In addition, she also talks about the latest lines for kids that make the process fun and worry-free for all.
