What is National Children’s Dental Health Month?

The ADA officially recognized February as National Children’s Dental Health Month in the 1940’s in Cleveland Ohio. Each year, the ADA comes up with a focus for their oral health promotion campaign. From flossing to fluoride, these topics remind parents and children why their teeth are so important.

Our staff recommends you take the following steps with your children to set them up for dental success:

Young children will want to brush their own teeth, but they will need help until their hand skills are better. Help children brush their teeth until they are about 7-8 years old or until they are able to tie their own shoes.

Now that you’re more educated about National Children’s Dental Health Month, give our office a call to get your kids scheduled for their next checkup.
