National Children’s Dental Health Month
Did you know that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month?
Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness of the importance of oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children to get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
This year’s NCDHM campaign slogan “Defeat Monster Mouth” is displayed on the eye-catching posters that feature the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck, along with their best friends and next-door neighbors, Den and Gen Smiley and K-9 the dog. They are fighting to defeat Plaqster the Monster for good oral health. The preteen/teenager’s message is about defeating monster mouth and maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing, and eating healthy snacks.
