February is National Children's Dental Health Month, known as NCDHM. This annual program is designed to educate Pennsylvania children about the importance of good oral health. 

As part of NCDHM, PDA conducts a prize-filled poster contest for third-grade students. Ask your teacher to download the NCDHM lesson plan and other important information found on this website. The lesson plan is full of fun activities that teach you about the importance of good oral health. Plus, you could win a prize worth $100, $250 or even $500!

Join in the fun by playing the games and completing the activities to learn how to take good care of your teeth. And remember, brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and clean between your teeth for a healthy smile!

Healthy Smile Tips:
Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Clean between your teeth daily.
Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverage and snacks.
