Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children to get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.  Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health.

Be sure to have an age appropriate toothbrush for everyone in your home and encourage brushing twice daily.  Floss sticks or dental floss help to clean between the teeth.
