February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, sponsored by the American Dental association (ADA). St. Paul, Minn orthodontist Jennifer Eisenhuth, DDS, celebrates the month each year by educating students on oral care and reinforcing good habits. In 2010, Eisenhuth will visit local schools to speak to classes on the importance of caring properly for teeth so children can keep them for a lifetime. She also provides free toothbrushes, dental floss, and toothpaste to the students.
“It is imperative to encourage and teach children about developing good habits,” Eisenhuth said. “That, combined with routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings, creates a strong foundation for what we hope is a lifetime of healthy gums and teeth.”
