AAPD PRESS RELEASE
Feb. 5, 2020
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!
As the leading authority on children’s oral health, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is a proud and strong sup- porter of this month. According to an AAPD national survey, only one in four parents are taking their child to the dentist by his or her first birthday, the age recommended by leading health experts, which means that children’s teeth are at risk.
 
SUPPORTING GOOD NUTRITION IN CHILDREN
Feb. 7, 2020
AAPD President Dr. Kevin Donly contributed a guest column for National Children’s Health Month, which appeared in both Di- mensions of Dental Hygiene and Decisions in Dentistry.
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, a time when oral health professionals focus on children’s dental health, including comprehensive oral care for infants, children, adolescents, and children with special health care needs. This vital effort begins by establishing a dental home by the first birthday so preventive and restorative dentistry is provided on a continuous basis, including care for oral trauma and other emergencies. Of course, a cornerstone of effective care is pro- viding preventive oral health education to children and their parents/caregivers.
