At Danville Dental Associates we want our youngest patients to know the importance of good oral health. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month – an occasion celebrated by dentists across the country. Dentists and staff from Danville Dental Associates are passionate about giving back to the community and provide presentations to help children understand the steps to good oral hygiene.
Children’s Dental Health Month Teaches Prevention
The purpose of Children’s Dental Health Month is to teach children of all ages the importance of keeping your mouth clean and healthy. Children are particularly vulnerable to cavities, so making the effort to improve their oral care habits will make a huge difference for them later in life. Our staff accomplished this through demonstrations and activities we thought would be fun for the kids.
Our Results and Photos Throughout February
Our mission to educate students brought us to many local preschools and elementary schools around Danville. By the end of the month, Tammy Betterton, our presenting assistant, had spoken to 1,172 kids at 15 different schools! That’s something to smile about! Here are a few photos of our experience; we can’t wait to do it again next year in 2020!
