Children’s Dental Health Month

Did you know that the health of your child’s baby teeth set the tone for the health of their adult teeth?  “Although many parents believe baby teeth are temporary and unimportant, they actually play an important role in your child’s developing mouth,” says Dr. Huhn, dentist for CCHD’s dental clinic.

The dental clinic at the City-County Health Department in Great Falls is reserving time throughout February for children under the age of 18 in observance of Children’s Dental Health Month.  Appointments will be specifically for dental screenings and fluoride treatments.

The American Dental Association sponsors the annual awareness month to remind parents about the importance of children’s oral health.  Developing good habits early on and scheduling regular dental visits can really get kids on the right track for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

The CCHD Dental Clinic has reserved 32 appointments in the month of February to assess children’s dental health.  Appointment days will be February 10th, 12th, 19th and 24th between the hours of 3pm and 5pm.  The appointments will be given on a first come, first served basis and all normal fees apply.  Medicaid and Healthy Montana Kids are accepted.

Interested patients may call the City-County Health Department’s Dental Clinic at 791-9267 for an appointment.  The CCHD Dental Clinic routinely provides dental care to children with Medicaid and Healthy Montana Kids, so make an appointment today!
