Children’s Dental Health Month

Children’s Dental Health Month

February 2015

 

Helping our children stay healthy is an everyday goal at Colony Square Dental Associates. Like pediatricians who recommend physical activities and balanced meals so our young ones stay fit, we welcome the opportunity to educate our next generation on how Brushing and Flossing contributes to overall well being.

They produced and provided educational materials for parents and students raising the public’s awareness of the need to give our little ones the tools to start off on the right foot (or toothbrush). By 1981 this became a monthly nationwide program sponsored by the ADA. And with today’s lifestyles and the array of snacks and sugary drinks presented on TV and in the stores it’s more important and challenging than ever to help our children understand how today’s choices impact their health tomorrow.                                                      md dino2Each year we actively participate in Children’s Dental Health Month by presenting at local schools. Dr. Hochberg, Dr. Diora and the entire treatment team are here to work with you to ensure that your children stay healthy. We know there is nothing like the smile of your child!
