The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs.  The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.  The Center for Disease Control states that it is important to get a flu vaccination each year.  The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions (like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing) to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu.  Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and dental professionals across the nation are collaborating to promote oral health to our nation’s youth. This includes reaching out and educating teachers and parents on the importance of establishing good oral habits and hygiene at an early age.  It is encouraged to make toothbrushing fun by providing children with toothbrushes that may have their favorite characters on them and by helping them time their brushing by humming along to their favorite songs.
