Each February, the American Dental Association (ADA) sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health. The month-long national campaign began in 1981, but the first national observance of Children’s Dental Health Day occurred on February 8, 1949. In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month 2018, we put together this how-to guide on loose & recently lost teeth.
