Children's Dental Health Month Toothbrush Contest

Last Updated: 2/13/2018

February is Children’s Dental Health Month! To promote the importance of good oral health, Tioga County Public Health is sponsoring a toothbrush contest.

Simply send a picture of your child brushing their teeth via private message on Facebook to the Tioga County Health Department and we will post it to our page! Include your child’s first name and address for the toothbrush to be mailed to. All children that are featured on Facebook will receive a Crayola Spinbrush.

Remember a healthy smile starts with good oral hygiene, a healthy diet, and routine dental visits. Start good habits early! Remember that soda and sugary treats are for special occasions and visit a dentist by age one. Tioga Mobile Dental Van is available for county residents without a regular dental home. Call 607-687-8600 for more information.
