National Children's Dental Health Month


National Children's Dental Health Month is celebrated each February to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Developing good habits at a young age along with regular dental visits will help children to have lifelong healthy teeth and gums. These resources will help to increase awareness of oral health and foster the importance of good oral hygiene to mothers and children.
