National Children’s Dental Health Month

The American Dental Association recognizes February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. This national health observance brings together dedicated dental and health care providers to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers and teachers. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. The ADA also celebrates February 6th as Give Kids a Smile Day, a day that provides free oral health care to children. Keep in mind that FIGHT Family Dentistry offers an array of services year-round, and dental insurance is not required to receive care. Visit them at 1207 Chestnut St., 4th Floor, their website https://fight.org/programs/dental-services/, or call 215-525-3046 to schedule an appointment.
