Week 4: School is out! Next challenge: Maintaining good braces hygiene habits over the summer...

Posted by Jill Zimmerman at

There goes the bus on Aaron's last day of school! Next week he'll be on his summer schedule -- or lack of schedule -- staying up late, sleeping in late, hanging out with friends playing soccer and video games all day. If we're lucky, he'll squeeze in a few chores. 

The big challenge will be maintaining good flossing and brushing habits without the regularity of a school day schedule. Plus, there will be many temptations to indulge in bad snack choices while traveling on summer vacations. These next few months will be a real test for Aaron.  It helps to have a Flossing and Brushing with Braces Guide on the mirror as a daily reminder! 

Stay tuned to see how he does! His first check up is coming up in a couple weeks.
