February is National Children's Dental Health Month

This month, dentists across the country focus their efforts on promoting oral health for children.   

While preventive care and fluoridated water have done much over the years to improve dental health, there is still a tremendous need:  even today, children miss as much school time for dental problems as they do for other illnesses.


Protecting Your Child’s Oral Health 

Dental health is based on a number of factors, including diet, nutrition & eating habits, home care, professional dental treatment and prevention of trauma from falls and sports injuries.  Much like other health care concerns, daily attention and knowledge of the early warning signs of trouble can help you keep your child’s smile happy, healthy and pain-free.

Throughout the month of February, we will pass along tips for children’s oral health for you and your family.  Please do not hesitate to Contact Us if we can assist you with information or schedule an appointment for a dental checkup for your child.
