February National Dental Health Month

Dental hygiene is one of the most important things we can teach our children. Unfortunately, for a lot of parents, getting kids to brush and floss their teeth is like ... well, like pulling teeth. 
  • Preventing tooth decay.  The most important way to prevent tooth decay at any age is regularly brushing and flossing.
  • Tap is terrific!  The ADA will focus on encouraging children to drink more tap water. Tap water is the primary source of fluoride for many children.
  • Visit a dentist for professional dental care.

Lending Library

We would like your family to take a minute and notice some new books in our lending library.  The library includes books for both adults and children.  Some books will include a book buddy.
