Oral Health Month focuses on the importance of prevention as the greatest impact of good dental health and overall health. By starting with good habits — like brushing for two minutes, twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and visiting your dentist regularly — you can help keep your smile healthy.
Leading by example is one of the best ways to teach these healthy habits to young children. Model your healthy habits of brushing and flossing by letting your children see you taking care of your mouth or make it a family routine together. When it comes to your dental checkups be sure to schedule them and keep them! Prevention is key and early treatment is important.
