February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, but any time of year is a great time to teach children about dental health. Forming good dental hygiene habits while they are young will help your child maintain their dental health now and into adulthood. Learning about dental health doesn’t have to be boring. Here are several fun activities, videos, and other resources you can use to teach your child about dental health. Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post for a free printable dental health activity pack!
