February Is National Children’s Dental Health Month

Since February 1941, the American Dental Association (ADA) has sponsored a national campaign combating poor oral health. The tradition continues this month as National Children’s Dental Health Month. Each February, there is a different theme to the campaign with an accompanying slogan. For 2019, this year’s theme is “Brush and clean in between to build a healthy smile.”

Help your children develop good brushing habits by encouraging them to brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day and scheduling regular dental appointments for them. Doing this will help improve your children’s oral health and promote a healthy lifestyle.
