This year to mark National Children’s Dental Health Month, the American Dental Association is encouraging kids to jump aboard the USS SugarSwatter (a space ship equipped with tooth brushes!) and engage in the “Sugar Wars.” They are also reminding children to remember the slogan: “2min2x!” This easy motto means brushing your teeth for two minutes two times a day to do your part in the Sugar Wars.

While the American Dental Association is making oral care fun for kids, dental disease is a very serious subject. Unfortunately, tooth decay is the most common childhood disease affecting three of every five children and accounting for hours and hours of missed school.

To promote National Children’s Dental Health Month, The Ohio State University’s College of Dentistry is holding their seventh annual¬†Give a Kids a Smile Day¬†this Saturday, February 6 from 8 am to noon. They will be offering FREE dental exams, cleanings, extractions, fillings, and crowns for kids who may not have the ability to see a dentist regularly.

To make an appointment, call 614-688-1470.
