February is dedicated to celebrating Children’s Dental Health Month. This dental holiday was created back in 1941 and started as a one-day event progressing to what it is now—a month-long celebration to bring awareness of the importance of children’s oral health. The goal is for parents, caregivers, dentists, and teachers to work together to teach children to develop healthy habits that will ultimately ensure proper dental skills are mastered that will carry children through to adulthood.
When thinking about our teeth, our main goal is to achieve optimal oral health and avoid decay and bacteria that leads to dental issues.
