Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month

Published on February 21st, 2018

Although our Lakeview dentists know that children’s dental health is important year-round, it’s especially important in February. The American Dental Association celebrates February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. We take pride in being one of the top dentistry’s in Chicago and we want to help your child feel confident about their smile.

The Battle Against Sugar

The ADA has deemed 2018’s Children’s Dental Health Month “Sugar Wars.” We all know how easy it is for kids to want to consume sugar. As parents and role models, let’s play our part in making sure we are fueling our kids with healthy foods that will give them energy all day long. Plus, giving them healthy snacks instead of sugary ones are much better for their oral health!

Beyond encouraging healthy eating, we also suggest that your kids brush their teeth for at least two minutes, twice per day. If you need help getting them excited, try brushing your teeth with them so it becomes a bonding experience. We also recommend that they floss at least once per day as well.

Last but not least, we want to be part of your children’s oral health journey! Regular visits to our Lakeview dentists will ensure your child’s mouth is healthy. Call us today to make an appointment!
