February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. The West Central Minnesota Early Childhood Dental Network (ECDN) is sponsoring a children’s coloring contest to help promote good oral health. All entries are eligible for a drawing for an electric toothbrush. Two names will be drawn. For contest rules and to download the coloring page, go to ecdn.wcif.org or visit the Early Childhood Dental Network page on Facebook. Colored pages must be received by Friday, Feb. 26.
The ECDN is a nine-county, multi-disciplinary collaborative project and an outgrowth of the Early Childhood Initiative coalitions of west central Minnesota. It is designed to increase awareness and education to all children and their caregivers about the importance of oral health, and to increase access to dental care, specifically to the 0-5 population on Minnesota Health Care Programs or the uninsured.
