February is National Children's Dental Health Month

Happy February, also known as National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM). It is a great time to make sure your family is current on visits to the dentist. 

NCDHM began as a one-day event in Ohio in 1941. It gradually expanded until it became an entire month in 1981. Many of my blog posts this month will focus on children's dentistry and oral health, from helping your own kids to ways to help those who are less fortunate.

There are many resources to help create awareness and promote good oral health for children, both at home and in school. Some can be found at  If you need a dentist for your child or for yourself, contact 1-800-DENTIST today.

I'm glad to know that February is National Children's Dental Health Month! I wondered why Aiden's preschool was devoting a whole month to good oral hygeine. Im such a slacker I should have known this. Thanks Fred for the information!
