Since February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, it’s the perfect time for us remind our young patients about the importance of brushing, flossing and eating well.

Children throughout the country miss 51 million hours of school each year due to dental health issues. Children with oral health problems are four times more likely to have a lower grade point average than children without oral health issues.

Today we’re joining with other dental practices nationwide to spread awareness of the importance of children’s oral health. We’ll be tweeting with the hashtag #childsmiles to help take Twitter over with this friendly reminder.
