National Children’s Dental Health Month
Did you know that February is the National Children’s Dental Health Month? During February the ADA wants to make sure you and your children know how important it is to develop good dental hygiene early on.
It’s important for your child to:
1. Brush in the morning and at night- make sure your child knows the correct way to brush his teeth!
2. Floss every night – younger children will need help with this.
3. Visit the dentist regularly – check with your child’s dentist to see if she wants your child in once or twice a year for a cleaning.
4. Eat healthy – try to limit sugary snacks and sodas that promote tooth decay.
We loved the free resources on the ADA site. They had all sorts of fun activities for kids to learn about healthy teeth – even a healthy smile certificate! Check it out and give your child a jump start to a healthy smile!
