Children's Dental Health

Good dental health for kids begins as soon as their baby teeth first appear. 

February is National Children's Dental Health Month. The American Dental Association (ADA) provides useful tools and resources to help parents keep their children's teeth as healthy as possible. 

This year's theme is "Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Shine." The ADA encourages parents and kids to choose tap water, when possible, to quench their thirst and avoid drinks with added sugar like soda and sweetened juices.  Also important is maintaining good oral health by brushing, flossing and eating healthy.
