Celebrating National Children’s Dental Health Month with Freebies for Your Patients

February 12th, 2014

It’s National Children’s Dental Health Month!

February isn’t just about Valentine’s Day, this month is the perfect time to give kids the extra push to show their teeth some love.

Every February the American Dental Association promotes the importance of teaching youngsters good dental health. The earlier children learn good dental habits the better. That’s definitely something IDS can get behind!

Did you know:

– Dental care is the most prevalent unmet health need of children in the United States.

– Tooth decay is the number one chronic illness in children.

– More than 51 million school hours and 164 million work hours are lost each year due to dental disease.

– Only 1.5% of 1 year olds have had a dental office visit compared with 89% who have had an office-based visit with their physician.

The ADA has a great resource for teaching kids good dental health, including downloadable activity sheets that can be handed out to kids. Scroll around for other great resources.

IDS has freebies for kids too. Just right click and save to print at your office.
