Saying “No” to Cavities Could Mean Saying “Yes” to Nintendo Switch
Delta Dental of Arkansas Hosts Month-Long Oral Health Challenge for AR Families
Delta Dental of Arkansas is hosting the “Say No to Cavities” Challenge through February 28 as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month. Arkansas children and their families are encouraged to brush their teeth twice daily for two minutes each, floss daily and track their progress on a calendar sheet, which is available for free downloading and mark-up on the company’s website.
Students up to age 17 may submit their completed sheet to Delta Dental by March 11, 2021, to enter a drawing for a Nintendo Switch.
“It takes about 30 days to form a new habit,” said Thomas Redd, DDS, MS, Vice President of Professional Relations of Delta Dental of Arkansas. “We’re using this habit-forming principle to motivate Arkansas children and their families or guardians to develop healthy oral habits over the course of February, National Children’s Dental Health Month. These healthy habits will serve them well their entire life.”
The Challenge is open to all Arkansas residents. There is no charge to participate. One entry per participant, please. Delta Dental of Arkansas employees and their immediate families are ineligible to enter the drawing.
More information, along with the February calendar page and submission guidelines, is available at https://www.deltadentalar.com/nocavitieschallenge.
