Last week, the team at Southcenter Dental blogged about the need to screen for gum and heart disease during the month of February, which is designated "America's Heart Month." Well, February is also National Children’s Dental Health Month, and Dr. Jerome Baruffi is here to tell you about the need for preventative oral care in kids. For 60 Februaries, the American Dental Association, or ADA, has sponsored National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. National Children's Dental Health Month began as a one-day event in 1941 in a Cleveland clinic. In 1981, however, the program was extended to a month-long celebration known today as National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Each February, Dr. Baruffi and thousands of fine dental professionals focus on the preventive oral care of America's children. Dr. Baruffi and our team want you to remember 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. Has your child visited Southcenter Dental the past six months? If not, it’s time to give us a call and schedule an appointment!
