Lakeville, St. Paul and Minneapolis, MN (WiredPRNews.com) Cosmopolitan Orthodontics, a St. Paul orthodontics office, participates in the celebration of the American Dental Association’s National Children’s Dental Health Month, held each February.
St. Paul Orthodontist Dr. Trudy Bonvino, the orthodontist on staff at Cosmopolitan, takes part in the campaign yearly by reminding her patients and students in Savage and Lakeville about good oral care habits.
Bonvino has spoken at schools for the past couple of years and has given away toothpaste, toothbrushes and dental floss. The St. Paul Invisalign professional also shares the importance of students taking care of their teeth in an effort to keep them for a lifetime.
This year, the ADA brought back the McGrinn Twins, Flossy and Buck, to promote the healthy smile message on activity sheets and other materials, said Bonvino, a St. Paul braces provider. Materials for 2011 also include Den and Gen Smiley, who remind children that a healthy smile is easy to find.
“Orthodontic treatment doesn’t matter if we don’t educate children about how to care properly for their teeth,” Bonvino said. “This is our opportunity each year to really make a concerted effort at spreading the word about properly caring for teeth. Getting into the schools means we reach a whole population segment that we don’t reach at our office.”
The NCDHM message has been seen and heard by millions of people throughout the country over the years, thanks to the ADA’s campaign materials, which have helped spread the message to generations of children.
“Encouraging children to cultivate those good habits, coupled with regular professional cleanings and check-ups, helps promote what we hope becomes a lifetime of healthy gums and teeth for children,” said the St. Paul invisible braces provider.
