The time has come once again to celebrate one of our favorite holidays in the nation. At Park Place Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics in Texas, both of our offices will be rejoicing that Halloween is over and celebrating proper brushing habits instead! Our goal is to spread awareness to children about tooth decay and the importance of brushing, even after eating copious amounts of candy!
What is National Brush Your Teeth Day?
National Brush Day is observed in the United States on November 1, the day after Halloween, to reinforce the importance of children’s oral health and promote good tooth-brushing habits recommended by dental experts. On this day, parents are encouraged to make sure their kids brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day. Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in America, with more than 16 million children in the U.S. suffering from untreated tooth decay. Nationwide, oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million school hours and their parents to lose 25 million work hours annually.
