February is always an exciting time here at Sunshine Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, as it’s National Children’s Dental Health Month! As your pediatric dentist in Melbourne we’re anticipating lots of fun activities over the next several weeks, including the Tooth Trot 5K.
“Defeat Monster Mouth” is the slogan for the 2015 National Children’s Dental Health Month, run by the American Dental Association. The month is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of early dental health. What we teach children about their oral health when they’re young will help them to preserve their dental health for a lifetime to come. Throughout National Children’s Dental Health Month, we will be presenting at schools across Brevard County to raise awareness and educate children about good oral health practices.
Dr. Kristin and her staff are looking forward to participating in the Brevard Dental Society’s 17th Annual Tooth Trot 5K, taking place on February 7th. Dr. Kristin and her husband Mike are excited to trot along while pushing strollers! Be sure to keep an eye out for our staff wearing brighter than the sun Sunshine Smiles t-shirts.
As your pediatric dentist in Melbourne, we hope that you and your children find National Children’s Dental Health Month to be educational, and we hope to see your smile out and about within the community. Happy trotting!
