Dental Health Important for Children and Adults Alike

It's time once again for the annual National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM), a program sponsored across the United States by the American Dental Association.

The 2014 NCDHM will be taking place this February, and Parmar Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to support the initiative. In fact, we'llchildrens dentist - fun poster to promote dental health even be taking part firsthand, by visiting the local Clarksville School and providing students with some essential information and ideas, and hopefully a fun presentation which encourages them to follow simple at-home dental health steps.

At Parmar Dentistry, we've always placed a premium on patient education, as well as striving for prevention before bigger problems develop. As such, the 2014 NCDHM serves as another way that we get involved with the community, and try to ensure that everybody in the Clarksville and Columbia areas have the proper dental health habits, information and resources to succeed.

NCDHM is a very important program, because proper dental health habits can easily build a foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and a great smile, while conversely, the wrong habits or a lack of information can spiral out of control and lead to major oral health problems.

This year, the 2014 NCDHM has the message, "Join the Super Smile Team!" and features different materials and posters aimed at either younger children or teens. At ADA.org, you can find all of those great printable posters, as well as a variety of fun ideas for activities with your children.

Many of these you can even do at home with your own children, too. For example, kids love the "apple decay demonstration" and it's an effective way to demonstrate how tooth decay can spread, too. You can set this up at home for an interactive little science experiment, and there are several other easy experiments and demonstrations you can setup as well.

Parmar Dentistry is dedicated to providing you and your family with the highest level of dental care and customer service, and we're excited to help raise awareness across the community as well. Children love Dr. Parmar! The office and the dental examal are geared towards kids of all ages so they feel comfortable.

Of course, it's also a great reminder to schedule that checkup examination for your children, too. So if they're overdue for the next appointment, be sure to call our office and we'll fit you in as soon as possible.
