February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM): Book a Dental Presentation for your School or Daycare

We would like to take this time to teach children about good dental habits that would contribute to a lifetime of healthy smiles.

We truly believe that attitudes and habits established at an early age are critical in maintaining good oral health throughout life. By participating in NCDHM, the dental team, parents, teachers, and others can help keep children’s smiles beautiful now and for years to come.

Please let us know if you’d like us to speak to your school during February. We have a fun and interactive presentation and handouts prepared by our children's dentist, Dr.Kelly O'Hara, who used to be a high school teacher before she becomes a dentist. Her presentation is interactive and gets kids motivated to take good care of their teeth. Please contact our main office at (402) 467-1000 if you’d like to arrange a school visit with one of our dental professionals.
