The American Dental Association (ADA) designates February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. Of course, at Kool Smiles every month is kid’s dental health month.
We are dentists committed to providing kids all across the country quality dental care. Keep reading to learn about Children’s Dental Health Month and how Kool Smiles participates.
This year, the ADA is taking aim at a major reason for tooth decay—sugar. Sugar combines with bacteria in the mouth and produces acid that eats away at teeth. So this year’s slogan is “Sugar Wars” and there are free flyers in English and Spanish for younger kids.
Here are some ways to help keep kids’ teeth healthy:
The sad fact is that much of what threatens our children’s dental health is preventable:
When we formed Kool Smiles in 2002, we decided to step in and help kids and families who had little access to dentists—type in your zip code to find one near you.
For Children’s Dental Health Month last year, we gave away toothbrushes and thousands of free lesson plans for teachers.
We love treating children—you’ll see the minute you walk in the door. Most of our offices have playgrounds, and parents are always welcome to accompany their kids back for treatment.
The most important thing about Kool Smiles is our quality of care. Over 97% of our patients would recommend us to family or friends. You can read their stories on our website.
