Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) hosts National Children’s Dental Health Month in order to bring awareness to the benefits and importance of proper dental health for kids.

Want even more ways to show your little ones how fun it can be to take care of their teeth? We’ve got plenty of great ideas!
