Increasing Awareness Throughout February – National Children’s Dental Health Month

Children's Dental Health Month

When February rolls around each year, dentists across the country begin their enthusiastic participation in National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM). This initiative of the American Dental Association (ADA), its members and constituent groups seeks to generate greater awareness among children of the crucial role good oral health plays in their lives. By using creative educational and motivational techniques and resources, participating family dentistry experts and other dental professionals work to assist teachers, caregivers, and others find effective ways to help kids establish sound dental care habits. As a means to further support the goals of NCDHM, dental offices across the nation will host concurrent Give Kids A Smile events where children from underserved communities will receive access to dental screenings, treatment, and dental care advice they otherwise could not afford.

The ADA has assembled many educational resources that can be used by local dental professionals, parents, teachers, and others to teach children proper dental care practices and help them learn positive oral health habits. Free online educational guides, lesson planning tips, coloring pages, and activity sheets are just a few of the useful tools that can be accessed through the ADA. This year’s offerings, built around the slogan “Join the Super Smile Team,” will make an impression on children across the country.

Dentistry professionals all over the U.S. plan to incorporate the Give Kids A Smile program into their work during the month of February, adding support to the NCDHM’s mission. Give Kids A Smile events give volunteer dentists and their staff members an opportunity to provide dental screenings and treatment to children from underserved communities. Nearly 45,000 dental industry professionals participate in this initiative each year. The combined efforts of NCDHM and local Give Kids A Smile events are truly remarkable.
