Tom’s of Maine teams up with Oral Health America to teach kids good oral care

See also

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month.

National Children’s Dental Health Month was established to help raise awareness to parents and child caregivers about the importance of insuring they are teaching good oral hygiene practices to their children. The best time to reach children about this issue is early on as they start getting teeth. The more a parent or guardian shows and teaches them about oral hygiene the less they will have to worry about numerous trips to the dentist office, for what could be very pricey repairs.

It is not just about brushing their teeth. It is about complete oral care. Tom’s of Maine is teaming up with the national nonprofit organization Oral Health America to help with this training. They are providing a free coloring book called “Brushing Fun,” which has tips and facts about oral care for children. The tips and facts are part of a story about a child’s journey into a magical forest. Your child will have a great time reading about this journey, being able to color along with it while learning about oral health. After all who does not enjoy a good coloring book once in a while?

To get your copies of the coloring book CLICK HERE.

When you download a copy of the book Tom’s of Maine will donate 10 tubes of their “Wicked Cool” natural kids toothpaste to Oral Health America. The goal and limit amount is 200,000 tubes. So CLICK HERE and be part of the 20,000 to download the book for your child and help Oral Health America reach this goal.
