Children’s Dental Health Month

31 Jan

February is children’s dental health month!  Each year on the first Friday in February, dentists and their dental team members all over the nation provide free oral health care check ups to children from low-income families across the country.

The ADA’s Give Kids A Smile® program enhances the oral health of large numbers of needy children.  Give Kids A Smile activities also highlight for policy makers the ongoing challenges that low-income families face in finding dental care.  For a listing of programs in your area, click here: http://www.ada.org/1587.aspx.

NOTE:  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children have their first visit to the dentist by their first birthday and every six months thereafter.
