February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, an annual observance during which dental and medical professionals, educators, and parents focus efforts to improve the oral health of all children.

Tooth decay in children is a fast-growing problem in the United States posing serious health risks. It is the most chronic disease affecting American children. A child’s overall health is closely linked to his or her oral health. You can help keep your children healthy by following what Wenatchee Valley Dental Excellence says, "Preventative dental care is one of the best ways to keep your kid's smile looking great and healthy for their whole lives." At McLoughlin Dental Care, we believe developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a jump start in maintaining a lifetime of good oral health.
