February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, otherwise known as NCDHM. NCDHM is an oral health campaign aimed at educating Pennsylvania youths about the importance of good oral health. 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. We also offer free online resources to assist you with oral health presentations, ideas for the classroom and coloring and activity sheets that can be used as handouts. Questions, comments, suggestions? Please contact Zsofia Kandrot, Communications Coordinator, by email, or phone,717-234-5941 x133.
