My 18 month old is the same way. I talked to my dentist and to my pediatrician, and they both said, hold him down and force him to brush his teeth for one minute twice a day.
At first he kicked and fought, but after a few days he gave up and let me do it.
If you dont brush her teeth, bacteria and food residue build up, and she is at risk for many dental problems, some of which require medical interventions and surgery.
This method isnt fun, but it works.
