In recognition of National Children’s Dental Health Month, an American Dental Association initiative that occurs every February, it is recommended that kids brush their teeth for two minutes, two times a day.

Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry promotes children’s oral health through student and college-led programs year round. In TAMBCD’s pediatric dentistry department, children may receive free dental screenings. For appointments, call 214-828-8133 or 214-828-8166.
