It’s February, which means the American Dental Association is celebrating National Children’s Dental Health Month.
This is a great time to share information with your patients about oral health care for children, and tips and tricks on protecting tiny teeth.
Consider providing helpful information in your monthly blog or newsletter on children’s oral health topics, such as:
The theme for this year’s National Children’s Dental Health Month is Water: Nature’s Drink.
Water consumption helps promote hydration for the body, and a healthy mouth and teeth. Not to mention the benefits it provides when washing away excess food particles after meals or counteracting sugary drinks and foods.
In some parts of the country, fluoridated water can help build and protect small teeth and promote cavity prevention.
This year’s theme is a great conversation starter with parents about what they can do at home to promote good nutrition and excellent oral health for their children.
To celebrate NCDHM and promote this year’s theme, check out The American Dental Association’s website for downloadable posters, kids’ activity sheets, and a planning guide containing resources for promoting good oral health to children.
Make February fun by sharing this helpful information with your youngest patients and their families.
