February National Children’s Health Dental

kids-teethEvery February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

To ensure that your children will have healthy teeth and gums, we encourage: maintaining regular dental visits, healthy eating habits and teaching great oral hygiene.

Recommendations from the ADA:

1. Choose tap water for a sparkling smile!
2. Avoid drinks with added sugar like soda and juice drinks!
3. Protect your smile with a toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste and floss.
4. Keep smiles sparkling: limit sugary treats, eat healthy and brush two minutes twice a day!
