NATIONAL BRUSH DAY
National Brush Day is observed annually on November 1st. Sometimes referred to as National Brush Your Teeth Day, National Brush Day is a reminder to all individuals to follow the American Dental Associations guidelines.
The day follows Halloween, which traditionally is the single most significant day of candy consumption in the USA. The simple act of brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes can have a substantial impact on cavity prevention as well as a myriad of oral diseases such as gingivitis.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Spend some extra time explaining the importance of brushing your teeth to children. Replace your toothbrush. Use #NationalBrushDay when posting on social media.
National Brush Day began in 2013 as an extension of the Kids’ Healthy Mouths public service advertising (PSA) campaign by The Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives. The coalition of more than 35 leading oral health organizations and the Ad Council launched the campaign in August 2012. National Brush Day is designed to remind and encourage parents to get their kids brushing their teeth for just two minutes, twice a day.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
