    “Brush, Brush, Brush, I’m Brushing My Teeth” ... Do practices match the recommendations?

    This article provides a portrait of the age at which brushing begins, the participation of an adult, and daily frequency, based on data from the Québec Longitudinal Study of Child Development (QLSCD). The data presented were collected from parents of the study children when the latter were between the ages of 17 months and 6 years, then when they were approximately 8 years of age. The QLSCD is providing a means of monitoring the development of a number of lifestyle habits among children born in Québec at the end of the 1990s, some of which are related to oral health.
