October is National Dental Hygiene Month

Published: 10/12/21

Jefferson County Department of Health is celebrating National Dental Hygiene Month in October. Oral health is essential for not just smiling, speaking, and chewing, but to general health and well-being.

By age one, infants should have their first dental exam for early problem detection and important oral health education that will benefit the entire family.

JCDH reminds you to brush twice daily, floss at least once a day, and choose a well-balanced, healthy diet, minimizing sugary foods and drinks.

Each of our three dental clinics accepts patients aged 20 and under. We accept Medicaid and Allkids and treat non-insured Jefferson County residents who meet age restrictions and federal poverty guidelines. Please call 205-588-5234 for more information.
