Set a good example
Kids are a reflection of their parents. They do whatever you do. This goes as simple as not eating chocolates just before bedtime, brushing two times a day, taking nutrition rich diet. Also, create a positive outlook on your regular dental visits. Never create a negative or bad image that scares them away from those visits.
There is nothing as flattering as a reward or a gift to a child. Encourage them to maintain good oral hygiene and reward them for doing so. This is a very good motivation for them to do so. Reward them with stickers, stars and even a miniscule amount of cash that also helps them teach the habit of saving.
