National Children’s Dental Health Month
For the whole month of February the ADA works together with thousands of dental health providers, healthcare providers and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health.
This years slogan “Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Smile” is to promote brushing and flossing twice daily to make sure to maintain a healthy and happy smile.
In visiting the ADA’s website you can download posters and fun activities to motivate your children to brush every day.
The Importance Of Tap Water
You may have heard before that tap water is healthy for your teeth – but do you know why? More than 70 years of research has indicated that optimal levels of fluoride in the water is safe and effective in preventing tooth decay by up to 25%. By simply drinking water daily, Americans can benefit from the protection fluoride provides no matter if you are at home, school or work!
