What better time to celebrate National Brush Day than the day after Halloween—after you’ve eaten all of your trick-or-treat sweets? Join us on November 1st to reinforce the importance of children’s oral health and good tooth-brushing habits.
According to the American Dental Association, tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease in the United States. Brushing your teeth is the cornerstone of any good oral hygiene routine for both kids and adults. It’s recommended to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.
Check out these other ways you can celebrate National Brush Day and erase that candy-coated guilt:

At MABLE, kids are an important part of our brand. That’s why we created our Buy Give Teach program. For every bamboo toothbrush you buy from us, we give one to a child here in the U.S. But we didn’t stop with just “the one-for-one approach”. We go school to school to teach kids about sustainable choices, personal health, and how products like our kids MABLE toothbrush ensure we don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.
In honor of National Brush Day, MABLE is giving away five of our kids bamboo toothbrushes! To enter, follow us on Instagram or Facebook and tag a Mom or Dad. Be sure to check back - a winner will be announced on the blog on November 2nd. Happy brushing!
