      February is National Children's Dental Health Month! 

    National Children’s Dental Health Month is meant to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.  Despite the fact that it’s almost entirely preventable, tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. The good news is there are safe and effective preventive measures that can protect teeth. Good oral hygiene practices such as thorough brushing with a fluoride toothpaste can help keep children from getting cavities. Visit the National Institute of Dental Research for kid-friendly resouces that help explain what's inside our mouths, what goes on in our mouth all day, how does a cavity develop and how can cavities be avoided.

    Many local dentists offer free dental care during National Children's Dental Health Month - make an appointment as soon as possible!
