Preschool Dental Activities and Themes for Dental Health Month
Thematic units are comprehensive lesson plans that revolve around a central theme or topic your preschoolers can get excited about. Thematic unit studies and lesson plans incorporate a variety of subjects including handwriting, reading, science, math, and the arts. It’s a fantastic way to show preschoolers the connections between academics and the world around us with hands-on projects, discussions, and immersive activities.
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Planning a thematic unit for Dental Health Month is a great way to encourage preschoolers to practice good oral hygiene, teach them all about their teeth, and explore fun topics like the Tooth Fairy. A Dental Health Month theme can also be a good way to help preschoolers overcome fears about visiting the dentist by learning about dentists and how they help our community.
Adding preschool dental activities makes learning all about teeth, oral care, and the dentist a lot more fun! Plus, it’s a great way to get extra practice with literacy, numeracy, and fine motor skills for young children. I’ve got lots of awesome printable dental health activities that make it easy for parents and teachers to practice counting, shapes, and fine motor skills with preschool students.

This hands-on Clean Teeth Activity asks preschoolers to brush teeth with laminated printable pages featuring teeth and simple instructions like “clean two teeth” and “add one cavity.” Preschoolers will build fine motor skills as they brush teeth and color in cavities on dirty teeth.

It’s an interactive teeth cleaning activity that will help students practice proper brushing, counting skills, and pre-writing. Plus, it’s fun! The best part is that this printable activity can easily be added to your classroom math centers for learning fun during Dental Health Month.
Preschoolers can also practice tooth brushing with a Montessori Tooth Brushing Toy.
