Super Smile Team to Inspire Kids During National Children’s Dental Health Month
The arrival of February signals the start of National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM), an initiative of the American Dental Association (ADA) intended to promote and heighten awareness of sound oral health and dental care practices to children everywhere. Combining motivational techniques and educational materials, the program also aims to teach parents, caregivers, and classroom instructors how to convey to children the importance of healthy teeth and gums. In addition, many of the dentists already participating in NCDHM also plan to serve their communities by hosting Give Kids A Smile events that will offer dental care services to youngsters from underserved communities.
To accomplish the educational objectives of NCDHM, the ADA has assembled a whole host of resources that can be used by local dental professionals, parents, teachers, and others to instruct their young charges on proper dental care practices and help them get into positive habits that will last a lifetime. Free online educational guides, lesson planning tips, coloring pages, and activity sheets are just a few of the useful tools that can be accessed through the ADA. Built around the slogan “Join the Super Smile Team,” this year’s offerings are sure to make an impression on kids across the nation.
Lending further support to the overall mission of NCDHM, dentistry professionals in numerous locations plan to incorporate the Give Kids A Smile program into their work for the month of February. Give Kids A Smile events offer dedicated volunteer dentists and their staff members an opportunity to provide quality dental screenings and treatment to youngsters who hail from traditionally underserved communities. Nearly 45,000 dental industry professionals participate in this initiative each year. The synthesis of NCDHM and local Give Kids A Smile events is truly a match made in heaven.
