National Children's Dental Health

Did you know tooth decay is the #1 chronic illness in children? Did you know that if a child’s tooth decay goes untreated it can lead to tooth loss, speech problems and even loss of self esteem? That’s why the American Dental Association has declared February National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining oral health and wellness. Developing good habits at an early age — like brushing twice a day, flossing, avoiding sugary foods and drinks and scheduling regular dental visits– helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
