February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. In Park City Utah we are so invested in oral health for children that our city council has declared February to be Park City Children’s Dental Health Month!
The Clinic is hosting a day of FREE dental exams for children on February 21, 2017.
Thanks to generous funding from Vail’s Epic Promise we are able to provide dental care to the children of Summit and Wastach Counties in Utah at no cost.

A RESOLUTION DECLARING FEBRUARY 2017 AS CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH
Whereas, our community recognizes that the success of Park City depends on supporting every individual without medical insurance so they may pursue their dreams and strengthen our county; and
Whereas, we recognize that through dental education and regular preventative dental care, tooth decay is almost completely preventable, and children can remain healthy and contribute to the success of their community, as their healthy smiles are the cornerstone of our resort town; and
Whereas, research shows that through supervised tooth brushing programs and preventative care, children can reduce dental-related illness, which causes kids in the U.S. to miss 51 million school hours each year, and school absences start as early as first grade; and
Whereas, through a balanced diet, brushing and flossing after every meal, and regular dental check-ups, children can avoid cavities and remain healthy; and
Whereas, in 2017, both children and adults who reside in Utah, will visit People’s Health Clinic and receive dental exams and education at no cost; and
Whereas, National Children’s Dental Health Month is an opportunity for Park City to unite citizens of Utah and raise public awareness about the importance of preventative dental care for all children; and
Therefore, the City Council of Park City, Utah, hereby declares February 2017 as Park City Children’s Dental Health Month.
