Throughout the month of February, the ADA suggests adults take the time to discuss dental hygiene with children. The ADA website states, "Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums."
This year's campaign uses the slogan, "Get a Gold Medal Smile," which includes a Program Planning Guide that adults can use to promote good oral health to children. The guide features activities, program planning timetable tips, and more.
