February is National Children's Dental  Health Month 



February is National Children's Dental Health Month and the American Dental Association, along with the ADA Foundation, are pleased to provide you with the February 2016 National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) campaign posters.  This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others. 


Join us, incuding partners at the United Way & Ventura County Oral Health Collaborative in this year’s NCDHM campaign slogan “Sugar Wars” is displayed on both sides of the poster. The Smileys, McGrinns and K9 are in a spaceship, the USS SweetSwatter. It is equipped with toothbrush swatters, fighting against the Sweet Tooth Invaders for good oral health. On the reverse side, preteen/teenagers demonstrate effective ways to defeat the effects of sugar and maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and eating healthy snacks. These versatile posters will help speakers, teachers, and others to address a range of age groups. Download the posters by visiting the ADA


Our Ventura County Public Health Oral Health Program reminds you to: 


 Brush teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day

  • For children under 2 years, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends using an amount of toothpaste the size of a rice grain
  • For children 2 years and older, or who are able to spit, use a pea sized amount of fluoridated toothpaste

2.    Floss teeth

3.    Get fluoride protection

4.    Eat healthy snacks

5.    Every child should be seen by a dentist regularly every 6 months starting at 1 year of age
