Children’s Dental Health Month 2024 

February is Kids Dental Health Month! At Golden Valley Health Centers, we’re thrilled to celebrate this special occasion by emphasizing the significance of oral health in children. Here are some tips and insights to ensure every child’s smile shines brightly.

1. Establish Healthy Habits:
  • Lead by example: Parents and caregivers should maintain their own dental hygiene routine, demonstrating the importance of oral health care to children.
  • Encourage a daily routine of brushing and flossing to instill lifelong wellness habits in children.
2. P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom:
  • Protect tiny teeth by starting oral care during pregnancy.
  • Ensure proper cleaning by wiping your baby’s gums after each meal.
  • Avoid bedtime bottles to prevent tooth decay.
  • Remember to brush your child’s teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Limit sugary drinks and snacks for optimal oral health.
  • Schedule your child’s first dental visit by their first birthday.
3. Root of It All: Are You Watching What Your Child Eats and Drinks?
  • Opt for fruits and vegetables as snacks instead of sugary treats.
  • Encourage regular brushing and flossing to maintain oral hygiene.
  • Serve water at mealtime to promote hydration and oral health.
4. Schedule a wellness check with Golden Valley Health Centers:
