February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

The month of February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM).  Each February, the American Dental Association sponsors NCDHM to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.  Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children to get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.  The February 2016 NCDHM Program Planning Guide is available by clicking here.

Healthy Learners through its partnership with the Richland and Lexington Dental Clinics of the Community Partners of the Midlands is promoting the benefits of good oral health to children.  Tip for the month:  maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and eating healthy snacks.
