National Children's Dental Health Month Observed by St. Paul Orthodontics Expert
February 16, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLAKEVILLE, ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA - Cosmopolitan Orthodontics, a St. Paul orthodontics practice, will participate in the yearly celebration of the American Dental Association's National Children's Dental Health Month, held in February.
St. Paul Orthodontist Dr. Trudy Bonvino, the orthodontist on staff, participates in the campaign annually by reminding her patients and students throughout Savage and Lakeville about good oral care habits.
Bonvino speaks at area schools and gives away toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss to children. The St. Paul Invisalign professional also shares the importance of students taking care of their teeth so they might keep them for a lifetime.
The ADA brought back the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck, this year to promote the healthy smile message on activity sheets and fliers, said Bonvino, a St. Paul braces provider. Materials for 2011 also include Den and Gen Smiley, who remind children that a healthy smile is easy to find.
"Orthodontic treatment doesn't matter if we don't educate children about proper care of their teeth," Bonvino said. "This is our opportunity each year to really make a concerted effort at spreading the word about properly caring for teeth. Getting into the schools means we reach a whole population segment that we don't reach at our office."
The NCDHM message has been seen and heard by millions of people throughout the country over the years, thanks to the ADA's campaign materials, which have helped spread the message to generations of children.
"Encouraging children to develop those good habits, combined with regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups, helps promote what we hope becomes a lifetime of healthy gums and teeth for children," said the St. Paul invisible braces provider.
