February is a month we look forward to all year round because it is National Children’s Dental Health Month.
In years past, our favorite way to celebrate is by visiting local daycares and schools to educate children, teachers and parents about the importance of oral health. Our practice believes strongly in community outreach programs in order to educate young children on the importance of oral hygiene and proper nutrition in our lives.
While we would love to continue our tradition of in-person visits, this pandemic precludes us from entering schools and daycares at this time. Since we enjoy these visits so much and recognize the value to the community, we are excited to offer an alternate option of a virtual visit. We have made a fun video of our presentation including a tour of our dental office and highlights of a dental appointment. We review the importance of regular dental checkups, as well as proper brushing habits and techniques. We also practice identifying healthy and unhealthy snacks so kids are motivated to make good choices at home.
Our team looks forward to these visits each year and we are excited to still offer this opportunity but in a new and safe format.
