Baptiste Dentistry for Kids launches Children’s Dental Health Month awareness campaign

The monthlong initiative aims to promote the importance of early dental care for children 


Baptiste Dentistry for Kids in Apopka announces its observance of National Children’s Dental Health Month beginning Feb. 1. This monthlong campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of children's dental health, inspire children to embrace dental health routines, and encourage parents to prioritize their child's oral well-being from an early age.

Numerous studies underscore the crucial connection between oral health and overall well-being. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Foundation recommends parents have a dentist in mind within six months after the child’s first tooth begins to emerge or by the time their first birthday comes around. Baptiste Dentistry for Kids is dedicated to championing children's dental health by providing valuable oral care resources and tips and tricks for parents during Children’s Dental Health Month.

"At Baptiste Dentistry for Kids, our team is dedicated to raising awareness and advocating for simple, daily habits that can profoundly influence the smiles of children in our community," said Dr. Pinnock, pediatric dentist at Baptiste Dentistry for Kids. "Through these efforts, we aim to foster improved self-esteem, reduce dental expenses, and pave the way for a lifetime of radiant and healthy smiles."

Studies reveal that children with cavities in their baby teeth are three times more likely to develop cavities in their adult teeth. Nearly 56% of U.S. children ages 6-8 have untreated cavities, posing potential pain for children and financial strain for families. These facts highlight the need for proactive dental care. Baptiste Dentistry for Kids encourages parents to embrace their role as positive influencers in their children's lives and to participate in NCDHM activities. By adopting these practices, families and dentists can help children establish healthy dental care practices for the rest of their lives.
