National Children’s Dental Health Month!

Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country.

Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Whether you’re a member of the dental team, a teacher or a parent, the ADA has free online resources that can help you with oral health presentations, ideas for the classroom and coloring and activity sheets that can be used as handouts.

Dr. Elliott and his team reach out to local schools with brushes, floss, and presentations that are fun and interactive and show children how to keep their smile healthy! We also started “Kids Corner” – a brand new board that is full of family photos, thank you cards, drawings, newspaper and achievement awards, and all sorts of fun stuff from our wonderful patients! We will also be drawing 4 names a month for different themed prize packs. Make sure your name is in the fishbowl for a chance to win :)

Warmest smiles,
