February is National Children's Dental Health Month. This month-long dental health celebration gathers thousands of devoted healthcare providers and dental professionals to promote the advantages of good oral health to children, parents, teachers, etc. 

And while it is a national observance, there are numerous steps you can take with your children to commemorate this tradition. Here are 3 easy activities to help promote National Children’s Dental Health Month:

  1. Let others know: As a parent, you could organize an event at your child’s elementary school to spread awareness. This process gets other parents (and the community at large) involved in promoting the importance of oral health for children.
  2. Start a crafts project with the child: There are many fun and exciting things to do for National Children's Dental Health Month. Consider downloading puzzles, filling out colouring pages, or starting a crafts project with your child to commemorate the occasion.
  3. Practice good oral hygiene together: Create an oral health routine with your child. Start brushing and flossing together regularly and make it a part of your daily activities. After all, children learn more from your example than anything else.
