When is dental health week 2017?
The Australian Dental Association’s major annual oral health promotion event takes place from 7 to 13 August and this year’s theme, Oral Health for Busy Lives, aims to encourage Australians to make taking care of their oral health a priority no matter what is going on in their busy lives.
Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and floss daily to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.
Schedule regular checkups with your dentist and hygienist so that problems can be caught early and addressed quickly.
Healthy teeth and gums help kids chew their food, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. Untreated tooth decay can negatively impact children’s physical and social development, their school performance, and their future success.
Developing good oral hygiene habits and scheduling regular dental visits at an early age will ensure your child has a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Publicizing your program
Every February the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign, along with our partners and grantees, observes National Children’s Dental Health Month. During NCDHM, we highlight the importance of oral health to promote good habits and healthy eating that will contribute to better overall health for children.
Press releases and news articles:
Using news media such as newspapers, radio, television, and community newspapers is an effective way to publicize your program. These publications usually feature local events, such as fundraisers or community health fairs, and can be a great source of publicity for your organization.
