Prevent Cavities with the Hocking College Dental Hygiene Clinic

by Melinda Casilli on February 11, 2022

February is National Children's Dental Health Month. This observance began in 1941 to bring attention to the importance of oral health. All month long, the American Dental Association (ADA) promotes the benefits of good oral hygiene. Starting children on a dental hygiene routine as early as two years old is crucial for creating a life-long habit. Cavities are the most common disease among children. The ADA states that "45% of American children between the ages of 2 and 19 experience tooth decay in their primary or permanent teeth."

2022 Theme

This year's campaign theme is "Sealants Make Sense." Sealants are a quick and painless protective coating applied to molars to help prevent cavities. The Hocking College Dental Hygiene Clinic provides this service at a reduced cost.
