Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. NCDHM messages and materials have reached millions of people in communities across the country.
The 2013 NCDHM campaign brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, health care providers and others to promote the benefits of good oral health to children and adults, caregivers, teachers, and many others.
This year’s NCDHM campaign features the slogan “GET A GOLD MEDAL SMILE”. The youth materials features the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck along with their best friends and next-door neighbors Den and Gen Smiley, going for the gold to get a winning smile. The pre-teens/teens materials features kids going the distance for a gold medal smile.
The NCDHM Program Planning Guide offers program coordinators, dental societies, teachers and parents resources to promote the benefits of good oral health to children. The guide includes easy-to-do activities, program planning timetable tips, a sample NCDHM proclamation, and much, much more.
Help your child develop good habits at an early age! Scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
