February is National Children’s Dental Hygiene Month

Eastern Shore Dental Care - Chester, MD

February is one of our FAVORITE month’s of the year because it’s National Children’s Dental Hygiene month!!! That means we get to visit area children all.month.long to teach them the importance of good dental hygiene.

This year, we even surprised some children with an appearance by the one & only Tooth Fairy! Our visits gave us the chance to speak to nearly 150 children at both the Centreville and Stevensville libraries, and St. Christopher’s Preschool. Every child in attendance was shown the proper way to brush, told which sugary foods were bad for teeth, and shown what to expect when they visit their dentist. We always have such a wonderful time doing these events and love seeing how excited the children get over their brand new toothbrush!
