A Happy Smile

February is National Children's Dental Health Month. Help young students understand the importance of brushing and having a clean mouth. Be sure children learn to ask a grownup for help with tooth flossing.

It's time to think about our teeth.
Those small white things that help us eat.

Brush them well 2 times a day
To help you fight tooth decay.

Have a grown up help you floss
Show those mouth germs just who's boss!

Finally, smile a happy smile
That shows bright teeth all the while!
