National Children’s Dental Health Month
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, created by The American Dental Association (ADA), with a theme for 2022 of “Sealants Make Sense.” This national health observance raises awareness about the importance of oral health from an early age.
To celebrate, we have opened additional children’s appointments at our Merrillville office. Between February 1-28, all children who have an exam and cleaning at our office will receive an extra special reward for practicing good oral hygiene! Every child will receive their own drawstring bag loaded with a squishy tooth toy, toothbrush, toothpaste and more.
