National Children’s Dental Health Month 2015

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 12.42.17 PMThe importance of children’s oral health is something that we can’t stress enough! That is why the American Dental Association sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month every February. What better way to fulfill our new year resolutions than by raising awareness about orthodontic care for our littlest patients and their precious developing gums?

This year’s NCDHM campaign slogan “Defeat Monster Mouth” is displayed on the eye-catching children’s posters that feature the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck, along with their best friends and next-door neighbors, Den and Gen Smiley and K-9 the dog. They are fighting to defeat Plaqster the Monster for good oral health!

Regular dental health exams, healthy snacks, fluoride treatments, and a consistent brushing routine are all ways that you can help your kids maintain their dental health. When your kids have fewer oral health issues, they will miss fewer days of school missed, which gives kids the opportunities they need to succeed!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us! We are here as a resource for you and want to keep your whole family healthy and smiling!
