Glendale, Ariz. - February 1, 2015 - February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, a month-long campaign to raise awareness about the importance of oral health in young children.
Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation is celebrating Children’s Dental Health Month in partnership with the Children’s Museum of Phoenix by offering fun and educational hands-on crafts and activities, meet-and-greets with the Delta Dental Tooth Fairy, Q&A sessions with pediatric dentists and much more!
“From First Tooth to Loose Tooth” is an educational program for parents that answers questions about caring for their child’s oral health—including the best time for your baby’s first dental visit, what to do when your child has a loose tooth and how to properly maintain your child’s oral hygiene— in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Kids can engage in fun activities such as art projects, flossing practice, brushing projects and more.
