February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM)! The American Dental Association (ADA) first observed Children's Dental Health Day on February 8, 1949. Six years later this one-day event was extended to a week, and in 1981 elevated to a month. Today, NCDHM is observed throughout February when dedicated oral health professionals, healthcare providers, and educators emphasize the benefits of pediatric oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and the public. The ADA is offering downloadable resources, posters, and flyers celebrating this year’s theme "Healthy Habits for Healthy Smiles!" at: https://ow.ly/83NY50QtM0R #NCDHM
NCDHM offers oral health care professionals a convenient opening to spread the word about how caries and oral health can impact our youngest patients’ overall health, development and quality of life. Follow ADHA all month on social media as they share resources that can help keep your pediatric patients smiling and enjoying a lifetime of good oral health and habits.
