Every February, we remind you that not only are you looking forward to a loved-filled Valentine’s day but you also get to spend the entire month enjoying National Children’s Dental Health Month! While celebrating on the fourteenth may be something that comes effortlessly, you may realize that celebrating this smile-health-related observance is not necessarily something you’re sure how to do. Not to worry! You’ve got our Dallas, TX pediatric dental team to offer you up some easy ways to ensure you’re making the most of what this month has to offer.
Engage In Activities (Brought To You By The ADA)
One very easy way to recognize National Children’s Dental Health Month is to give your kids some fun things to do that are directly related to oral health. Did you know that the American Dental Association has made a poster, sheets for coloring, a maze, a crossword, and more available in honor of February and your child’s smile? When you check out these very easy-to-download and print PDFs, you’ve got yourself hours of fun (and a very easy introduction for bringing up smile-related care with the kiddos).
Stock Up On Smile Related Stuff!
Another fun way to really get into the spirit of National Children’s Dental Health Month with your family is to bring the kids to the store and to go all out when it comes to dental health products. We suggest you start by choosing new toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, and more together. You can explain more about dental hygiene as you shop! Then, if you feel inspired, continue on with your journey as you explore good gum (sugarless) and bad gum (sugary), as well as foods that are good for one’s smile versus those that aren’t so wonderful.
Use It As Your Own Personal Reminder To Schedule Visits
If you’re someone who really appreciates a helpful reminder here and there, especially since your schedule is likely crammed full of things to do and to remember, then go ahead and rely on National Children’s Dental Health Month as your quick wake-up call to your children’s dental care needs. If it’s time to set up a visit, let us know, and you’ll have an appointment on the books!
