Furthering Service and Education During National Children’s Dental Health Month
February has long been recognized as National Children’s Dental Health Month as a way for members of the American Dental Association (ADA) to help further the goal of promoting improved oral health and dental care habits among younger populations across the country. This year, a number of participating professionals also plan to host Give Kids A Smile events as a way to demonstrate their continued commitment to ensuring access to quality dental care for those who need it the most.
Since its inception, National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) has provided free resources and materials to promote proper dental care habits for children throughout the U.S. The ADA has used NCDHM to educate, inspire, and support patients throughput the country, emphasizing the importance of routine dental visits to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. NCDHM also involves family dentistry and other oral health professionals, teachers, and parents in the task of teaching children the importance of keeping their teeth and gums healthy by offering classroom lesson ideas; videos, and other materials that educate children about proper dental care habits.
By providing dental care services to underserved children, the ADA’s Give Kids A Smile program is a perfect fit for National Children’s Dental Health Month. The program offers events where dentists and other oral health practitioners provide examinations, dental care treatment, and oral health education to children nationwide. With more than 44,000 volunteers helping to advance the ADA’s mission of better dental care, nearly 450,000 children benefit from these events each year.
