Feb. 7 - National Children's Dental Health Month

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA – The Healthy Teeth, Healthy Kids campaign was ignited by the young life lost to dental disease, 12-year-old Deamonte Driver. Since this horrible incident, the State of Maryland has been dedicated to preventing another such case.

Many parents and caregivers are unaware of how important oral health is to overall health and the actions necessary to ensure their child's oral health.

Delaying or skipping dental treatment or not incorporating appropriate oral hygiene and dietary practices can increase a child's chances for oral disease.

While tooth decay is nearly 100% preventable, it remains the single-most common childhood disease nationwide.

The Maryland Dental Action Coalition is an independent, broad-based statewide coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to improving the oral health of all Marylanders through increased prevention, education, advocacy, and access to oral health care.
