Did you know?
Doc Bresler's Cavity Busters' offers a FREE Children's Dental Education Program that teaches young children about good oral health care?
DOC BRESLER'S Community Outreach Department visits pre-schools, day care centers, houses of worship and youth groups presenting its Free Children's Dental Education Program, teaching very young children (and educational staff) about the importance of good, early oral health care habits. The program is year-round.
Every February during National Children's Dental Health Month, Doc Bresler's Cavity Busters' Free Children's Dental Education Program is presented to at least 1,000-1,500 students! The ADA February month's theme is incorporated into Doc Bresler's "goody bags" with activity sheets, along with a toothbrush, prizes and educational materials for parents. Each program runs 30-45 minutes and presented in "kid-speak", provides fun but memorable lessons on early oral health care including brushing techniques, healthy and nutritious foods to maintain good oral health, and the importance of reducing sugary snacks and drinks. If you are an educator and would like to arrange for a program in your school, contact Jeana Dilaqua, Doc Bresler's Community Outreach Director at 215-543-5105 Ext 18.
The ADA says February is a good time for parents to talk to their children's dentists about the importance of regular dental examinations, first dental visits, ways to prevent early childhood cavities, proper brushing and flossing techniques, thumb-sucking, dental sealants, choosing the right mouth protector for active children and adolescents, and teaching children to say no to tobacco. With early oral health care education, children's teeth can last a lifetime, and a healthy smile is important to a child's self-esteem. "Dr. Josh" and "Dr. Jason" tell parents that with regular dental checkups, twice daily brushing and daily flossing, and a balanced diet - children's teeth can remain healthy and strong.
