Baltimore families interested in getting their children exposed to dental health practices at an early age may want to bring them to the National Museum of Dentistry.
Since 1996, the museum has offered various exhibits about dental health and lesser-known facts to engage kids. For example, to celebrate inauguration day on January 20th, the museum is offering $1 admission to honor the nation's first president, George Washington, who took office with only one natural tooth.
This year, there will be a touring exhibit titled Your Splitting Image where visitors can use a computer program with a touch screen to see what their mouth says about their personality. While fun, its aim is to have children begin to think about dental care, according to the museum.
Introducing good dental care at an early age for children can prevent serious conditions as they mature, such as childhood teeth decay, one of the most common childhood diseases.
The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily, as well as using mouthwash with fluoride and flossing for optimal dental health.
