Kid friendly dental health videos for kindergarten and 1st grade. Your students will learn about teeth and dental hygiene with these fun videos.
10 Kid Friendly Dental Health Videos
The first five dental health videos are all from SciShow Kids! I seriously LOVE this YouTube channel. Their educational videos are endless. I love how they are short and jam-packed with great information. I couldn’t choose just one so here they are!
#1 Why Do We Brush Our Teeth?
#2 Teeth: Not Just For Smiles!
#3 Why Do We Have Baby Teeth?
#4 Visiting The Dentist
#5 Remember To Brush Your… Egg?
This would make a great experiment!
#6 Billy Blue Hair – Why Do I Have To Go To The Dentist?
This animated video is pretty educational. It teaches about plaque and tartar on teeth and what a dentist does.
#7 Delta Dental: Land Of Smiles
Delta Dental puts on an amazing program for schools called Land of Smiles. Depending on where you live, Delta Dental will come to your school and perform a 30-45 minute assembly for primary students. I wouldn’t recommend the presentation for students past second grade. In the experience I’ve had, they also send a goodie bag for students with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss! The video below is animated, but the performance is live and pretty cool! I couldn’t find a universal webpage with information. However, if you do a Google search with “Delta Dental Land of Smiles” and the state you live in, you will quickly discover if it’s available in your area. (There are several additional videos that follow this one.)
The next three videos are read-alouds of some great dental books for kids!
#8 Throw Your Tooth On The Roof – 3 Parts!
This book is awesome to read and learn about different tooth traditions around the world. It is a long book, so breaking it up is a good idea.
#9 Just Going To The Dentist
#10 If You Had Animal Teeth
This series is a favorite for kids! There are activities for this story as well. Get them by clicking here, What If You Had Animal Series Engaging Readers Bundle.
Oh.. and a bonus video. I already told you how much I love SciShow Kids. I couldn’t leave this one out!
