National Children’s Dental Health Month

national childrens dental health month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month,
with the 2022 theme being ‘Sealants Make Sense.”

The month is a national health observance that brings together thousands of dedicated professionals, health care providers and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.

Watch for ways to get involved in your area on the DSWP website and Facebook page. The current DSWP chair of NCDHM is Dr. Jennifer Waters.

Poster Contest

The NCDHM poster contest for third-grade students is a great way to conclude February’s oral health lesson. By having the students draw posters reflecting what they learned during NCDHM, the message of how important dental health is to overall health will be reinforced.
