National Children's Dental Health Month

community_service.jpgNational Children's Dental Health Month is one of the many ways we help our local communities, including Atascadero, Paso Robles, Templeton, and San Luis Obispo. Every February, we focus efforts working with local schools and other organizations to ensure residents of all ages are educated about the importance of oral health to good overall health as well as the impact oral health can have on a child's learning and school performance. (Learn more about oral health and learning.) 

Dr. David Cottrell has been visiting local schools during National Children's Dental Health Month as well as at other times throughout the school year for more than ten years. He and members of his staff have visited preschool, kindergarten, and first grade classes to illustrate good dental health habits as well as to explain the importance of nutrition and diet to good oral - and overall - health.
