Healthy Smiles from the Start - Kit
The Alliance of the American Dental Association (AADA), together with the American Dental Association (ADA) and Henry Schein Cares (HSC), launched Healthy Smiles from the Start, a new multifaceted prenatal and postnatal dental health care education program for mothers and caregivers of newborns. Created to address the nation's growing dental health issues during pregnancy and throughout early childhood, Healthy Smiles from the Start is engaging and helpful information - available in English and Spanish - about how and why to make mouth healthy habits a priority for everyone in the family.
2016 NCDHM Campaign
The American Dental Association, along with the ADA Foundation, is pleased to provide you with the February 2016 National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) campaign poster. This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.
This year’s NCDHM campaign slogan “Sugar Wars” is displayed on both sides of the poster. The Smileys, McGrinns and K9 are in a spaceship, the USS SweetSwatter. It is equipped with toothbrush swatters, fighting against the Sweet Tooth Invaders for good oral health. On the reverse side, preteen/teenagers demonstrate effective ways to defeat the effects of sugar and maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and eating healthy snacks. These versatile posters will help speakers, teachers, and others to address a range of age groups.

The NCDHM Posters feature the 2016 slogan "Sugar Wars" and are available in English and Spanish.
