For the 13th year in a row, Delta Dental of Arizona and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix are partnering in February – National Children’s Dental Health Month – to make oral health a bit more fun. Through the partnership, the Museum will host interactive activities, shows and educational information all related to the mouth, teeth and oral health each weekend all month long.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, this year the events have moved outside, and all participants are required to wear face coverings. The oral health programs include:
In addition, “Smile Bags” containing toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and fun facts about dental health, which will be available every day to all visitors of the Museum Feb. 1-28, as well as daily hands-on activities ranging from art projects to teach proper brushing techniques and flossing tactics, crafts to create tooth fairy pillows and tooth-saver necklaces, and educational opportunities to learn about tooth-saving traditions from other cultures and about the teeth of various animals.
