National Children’s Dental Health Month
February marks the return of National Children’s Dental Health Month, with the theme “Defeat Monster Mouth”
National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) is observed every February around the world, and is sponsored by the American Dental Association® (ADA) and their public oral hygiene resource – Mouth Healthy™. The impetus behind NCDHM is the goal of early adoption of proper oral hygiene techniques by our young people. Children, from infants to toddlers to teenagers, must be taught the importance of good oral health, and the techniques to achieve it. This helps ensure a solid base for them to build a lifetime of strong dental health on.
The Smile Generation®’s trusted pediatric specialists – My Kid’s Dentist® (and Every Kid’s Dentist® for Arizona & Georgia residents) – take the goal of youth dental education very seriously. One of the best methods to teach children is through entertaining – yet educational – videos. My Kid’s Dentist and Every Kid’s Dentist create great videos that teach children all about the dental office and dentists, dental health and how to build a healthy smile.
One of the most popular videos is: How to Brush Your Teeth Properly – For Kids.
