Visit Martin Orthodontics during the month of February and pick up a FREE youth toothbrush...all as part of our celebration of Children's Dental Health Month! The American Dental Association held the first national observance of Children's Dental Health Day on February 8, 1949. The single day observance became a week-long event in 1955. In 1981, the program was extended to a month-long celebration known today as National Children's Dental Health Month. Today, NCDHM is a nationwide program and its messages reach millions of people in communities across the country and at numerous armed service bases abroad. The theme for this year’s campaign is "Sugar Wars," featuring two sets of twins - Flossy and Buck McGrinn and Den and Gen Smiley.
