February is National Children's Dental Health Month. This is a great opportunity to promote the benefits of good oral health. Developing good dental health habits, including scheduling regular dental visits, helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
At Chauvin Family Dentistry, we love taking care of children! The main attraction for the kiddos is our jungle themed room and who could resist the goodie basket at the end of the appointment? I still have fond memories of the treasure chest full of magical surprises at my childhood dentist.
The American Dental Association has chosen this year's campaign slogan to be "Water: Nature’s Drink!" Visit the 2021 NCDHM Campaign website to download posters and activity sheets for kids (like a coloring sheet, a maze and crossword puzzle.) Check out free publications from the National Institutes of Health including material on baby teeth and tooth decay.
