The National Children’s Dental Health Month campaign comes about each February. The goal is to bring together educators, dental professionals, health care providers and others to promote the benefits of good oral health. These leaders team up to work with children, their teachers, and their caregivers year after year. As the orthodontist Vancouver families trust with their smiles and braces, we encourage people of all ages to learn more about Dental Health Month.
The slogan for the 2019 campaign is ‘brush and clean in between to build a healthy smile.’ What started once as a single day of
awareness out of Ohio has now grown into a national campaign celebrated the
entire month of February.
Forming great oral health
Healthy habits begin forming at an early age. Work with children to start them on the right
path towards a healthy smile. Our
Vancouver orthodontist and team believe our priority is to teach our patients
about oral health care and help reinforce good habits so their smiles stay in
great shape. Aside from brushing and
flossing, our Vancouver orthodontist patients need additional care. Food can get stuck in brackets and under wires
so brushing and flossing is always important.
Oral hygiene habits and exams
Regular visits with our Vancouver orthodontist and with your
own dentist are all part of your oral treatment plan. With professional visits you are assured that
your smile is getting the care it needs.
Maintain great flossing habits and brushing habits and talk with our
team if you have concerns. Use water
flossers or floss threaders for an easy way to floss between your teeth while
you wear braces.
Our team is here to care for your smile and we want you to feel comfortable talking with us about your oral health. Learn more about us through Facebook or give us a call to set up a consultation. We look forward to working with you to build you a great smile and to helping you establish a wonderful oral hygiene routine.
