Most people associate February with Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day and President's Day. For others, the month signifies an exciting time in sports and music thanks to the Grammy Awards, Super Bowl and Daytona 500.
But did you know February is also National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM)? Observed annually, the American Dental Association (ADA) works with dental professionals, health care providers and educators across the country to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health to children and their caregivers.
According to the CDC, tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in children. Through education and preventative measures, NCDHM aims to mitigate that number by helping children develop good dental hygiene habits at an early age.
National Children's Dental Health Month has been nationally recognized and celebrated for over 75 years. In support of its mission, we are offering a 20% discount on all of our dental forms and pediatric stickers for the entire month of February. Use the promo code NCDHM2019 at checkout.
