Montessori-Inspired Dental Health Unit

Montessori-Inspired Dental Health Unit

It’s hard to keep up with all the holidays and events in February, but it’s not too late to start a dental health unit in honor of February as Dental Health Month. Of course, it’s fine to have a dental health unit any time of the year.

Care of self is an essential part of the Montessori practical life curriculum. While it’s important to focus on dental health and teeth cleaning in a dental health unit, you can add any tooth-related activities for interest and to work on skills in various curriculum areas.
