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.

2016 NCDHM Poster

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