October is National Dental Hygiene Month!

October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Oral health experts agree that creating healthy smiles begins in infancy. Dental public health focuses on improving oral health by expanding access to effective prevention programs. Examples of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s efforts in this area include community water fluoridation and school dental sealant programs.

Cheney Students Receive Free Dental Screenings

In April, Cheney Wellness Cottage dental staff partnered with Cheney Elementary to provide free dental screenings for all students.

During the dental screenings, Cheney Wellness Cottage dental staff provided an oral screening (without x-rays), information about proper nutrition, and provided an oral hygiene “goody bag” for every child.  Children brushed and flossed their teeth under the supervision of a dental assistant along with instructions on proper brushing.

The screenings were free for all children and if the child had dental insurance, the insurance was not billed.  All students were eligible for the screening regardless of whether they have a dentist who they see regularly.

Prepare Your Child for the Dentist

dentistGoing to the dentist can be scary for our children.  The American Dental Association provides these suggestions to help ease their fears and increase the likelihood of an enjoyable experience.

  • Making sure your child brushes twice a day. Ensure that kids aged 6 and younger are supervised and have help brushing.
  • Scheduling the appointment when your child isn’t likely to be tired. For younger kids, don’t schedule it during naptime. For older kids, don’t schedule the visit after a long school day.
  • Allowing the older child — presumably the one with the most experience — to go first and serve as a role model for the others.
  • Making sure your child has had a snack before the appointment to avoid irritability from hunger.
  • Making sure you stay calm, even if your child acts nervous before the appointment.
