Fulfilling the Mission – National Children’s Dental Health Month
The month of February has been designated as National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM), a time when members and affiliates of the American Dental Association (ADA) endeavor to spread the word about the importance of proper dental care and oral health to youngsters and their parents nationwide. To make this year’s NCDHM even more powerful, many participating dental care professionals are also hosting Give Kids A Smile events, showing an impressive commitment to the goal of fostering healthier teeth and gums for youngsters everywhere.
With its mission of providing dental care services to underserved youth populations, the American Dental Association’s Give Kids A Smile program is a natural fit for National Children’s Dental Health Month. The program offers events that can be held throughout the year, during which family dentistry experts and other oral health practitioners provide examinations, treatment, and dental care education to children across the U.S. With the help of more than 44,000 volunteers, nearly 450,000 children benefit from these events each year. Holding a Give Kids A Smile event during NCDHM is a natural convergence of objectives and will help to advance the cause of better dental health for all.
National Children’s Dental Health Month has resulted in the nationwide distribution of free resources and helpful materials designed to promote proper dental care habits for children. Emphasizing how routine dental visits are crucial to a lifetime of strong teeth and healthy gums, the ADA has used NCDHM to educate, inspire, and support patients throughput the country. In addition to the many dentists participating in this initiative, NCDHM also involves teachers and caregivers in the task of teaching children the importance of keeping their teeth and gums healthy, offering classroom lesson ideas; activity ideas, videos, and other materials that introduce kids to proper dental care habits and practices.
