Park Place Dental Group Promotes Pediatric Dental Health in Honor of National Children's Dental Health Month

January 28, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Shiloh, Indiana - Park Place Dental Group supports pediatric dental health awareness during National Children's Dental Health Month, which is observed throughout February 2014.

National Children's Dental Health Month is an annual event sponsored by the American Dental Association (ADA). The purpose of the event is to educate the public about the importance of children's dental health. Throughout the month, dentists around the country will partner with the ADA and reach out to their communities to spread the word about the importance of regular dental visits and at-home brushing and flossing for kids. The theme for 2014 is "Join the Super Smile Team!" with the program encouraging kids to floss and brush by introducing them to a group of best friends who work hard to take care of their smiles.

As a part of National Children's Dental Health Month, Dr. Kevin L. Shelton of Park Place Dental Group will visit local schools to discuss good oral hygiene practices. Dr. Shelton participates in the event every year, explaining that "National Children's Dental Health Month is the perfect time to teach children how important it is to brush and floss on a daily basis. By teaching children good oral hygiene habits, parents, educators and dental health professionals can help children avoid serious dental problems later in life."

Participating in National Children's Dental Health Month is a natural extension of the dedication to promoting oral health in children that is a guiding philosophy of Park Place Dental Group. The dental practice offers cleanings, exams, fillings, orthodontic care and many other dental health services for children. As Dr. Shelton explains, "Our entire team is committed to making trips to the dentist good experiences for children. By helping them feel at ease in our office, we can help avoid fears of the dentist that can make them hesitant to undergo cleanings and exams as adults."
