February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM)
Our talented Dental Team would like to take this time to educate children about good vs. bad dental habits that can contribute to oral health issues.
Teaching kids that having a good attitude about living a healthy lifestyle combined with developing good oral hygiene and dietary habits are very important in maintaining the oral health of your child. By participating in the NCDHM, our dental team can help educate parents, teachers, and children on how to keep their smiles beautiful for an entire lifetime. Our children’s dentist, Dr. Kelly O’Hara, and Nebraska Family Dentistry have prepared a fun and interesting presentation to help children (K to 5th grade) learn healthy dental habits.
This presentation is interactive and gets children’s attention. Most importantly, it inspires children to take good care of their teeth and keep their teeth for a lifetime.
Please contact us if you would like our dental professionals to come to your school during February (dental health month) or any other month. We would love to visit and bring an intriguing presentation including handouts for elementary age children. Please contact our community educators if you’d like to arrange a school visit at 402-304-3549or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
