February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. This special observance started as a one-day event in 1941 in Cleveland, Ohio, to raise public awareness about the importance of oral health.

The local festivities included school essay and poster contests, health fairs, free dental screenings, presentations, and various activities to stimulate children’s interests about dental health. Soon the special day affair became a week-long event in 1955, and in 1981 became a month-long observation known today as National Children’s Dental Health Month.

Stopping at a red light, a white car pulls behind you and you start to get nervous. You start focusing on your driving when the light goes green but you notice those red and blue lights and pull next to the street. While grabbing a piece of gum, a man walks next to your vehicle and asks you if you have been drinking since he saw you were swerving some streets back.
