Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. The Oral Health Month 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. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Brookhaven Children’s Dentistry
For this year’s Oral Hygiene Month, Brookhaven Children’s Dentistry participated in numerous preschool and elementary school teachings! Our office instructed students at 9 different pre-schools, including 21 separate classes. We instructed at 4 different elementary schools, participating in two different elementary school “science night” activities, four different Kindergarten classes, five different 1st grade classes, and two classes of 2nd graders. The students really enjoyed the games and activities we had planned and all had great answers for our questions!
We really appreciate all of the help from the administrators, parents, and teachers of these schools. Without their assistance, we would not have the opportunity to instruct these students. And finally, thank you to all of the students and staff of these schools for allowing us to come and teach! We’re so happy to spread knowledge of good oral hygiene habits, to help kids maintain healthy smiles for a lifetime.
