Celebrating Children's Dental Health Month - Holistic Fairfax Dentistry

February 03, 2017

Children's Dental Health Month 

National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) began as a one-day event in Cleveland, Ohio, on February 3, 1941. The American Dental Association held the first national observance of Children's Dental Health Day on February 8, 1949.  The single day observance became a week-long event in 1955. In 1981, the program was extended to a month-long observance known today as National Children's Dental Health Month.  We're celebrating all month, ask about our holistic fairfax dentistry practice in Virginia.

History of Children's Dental Health Month

Since 1941, the observance has grown from a two-city event into a nationwide program. NCDHM messages reach thousands of people in communities across the country and at numerous armed services bases. Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children to get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
