CHICAGO-Good oral health habits should be taught from an early age and for this year's Fall for Smiles® campaign, Oral Health America (OHA) and dental manufacturer Hu-Friedy are encouraging kids of all ages to take care of their teeth through a fun coloring page.
"We're happy to participate again this year in OHA's Fall for Smiles campaign," said Patrick Bernardi, Vice President, Global Brand Marketing and Communications at Hu-Friedy. "The coloring sheet is a great way to introduce oral health to kids and we hope families and dental offices take advantage of this fun resource."
Hu-Friedy also graciously hosted OHA staff members for a meeting that included time with Hu-Friedy executives and a tour of the company's manufacturing facilities.
The Fall for Smiles coloring page features a fall scene and tips for taking care of your teeth, including avoiding tobacco products, eating healthy foods, brushing and flossing daily, and visiting the dentist every 6 months. The coloring sheet and many other oral health resources are available to download on the Fall for Smiles webpage at www.oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles. The campaign, which runs through the end of October, spreads the message of the importance of oral health for all Americans
