February is Park City Children’s Dental Health Month

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.

Resolution  02-2017

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.

    This is true that children’s dental care is more important than adults. Therefore for a good overall health everyday dental care is required. That’s why I do not believe that one should wait for dental health month. However I would accept as a month of dental health if poor kids will get the free treatments.
