Has she ever seen a picture of someone who does not brush their teeth? I would not reward bad behavior, taking away a privilege sounds like a good idea. I would treat it just the same as any other bad behavior.

set a rule and if she doesnt brush them tell her your going to do it for her and follow through with it. As long as you have to brush them take away her privilages she gets an an older child like video games or tv ect...

blackmail works a treat! let her know that this is something she has to do! brush your teeth with her, is there a reason she won't brush-e.g-doesnt like the taste?

make it fun & unusual! the best way i found was to take my kids in & let them pick out they're own special toothbrush! (o.k they went for most exspensive) but it worked!!! hope it helped!

let me know!
