National Children's Dental Health Month

Support National Children's Dental Health Month by taking children to the dentist in the month of February. Dental decay is the single most common chronic disease of childhood, with 16.5 million children suffering from untreated tooth decay. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

This year's NCDHM campaign features the slogan "Join the Super Smile Team!". It features fun and exciting characters that children can relate to and join to team in fighting for great oral health and a super winning smile.
