Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease in the U.S. Despite the high rates or oral disease in children, surveys reveal that parents perceive their children’s dental health as a low priority compared to other issues such as school safety and nutrition. Parents are encouraged to participate in the campaign through digital media. To take part in National Brush Day, parents can join the Kids’ Healthy Mouths communities and share new campaign images on Facebook and Twitter.
National Brush Day. As it is part of the Kids’ Healthy Mouths campaign, a national initiative launched by The Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives and the Ad Council in 2012. It aims to help parents and caregivers understand why poor dental health can have serious consequences, and about simple ways in which they can help improve their children’s oral health and prevent dental disease. National Brush Day promotes improving the nation’s children’s oral health by supplying parents with simple information on when to start various levels of oral hygiene with their kids.

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 largest day of candy consumption in the USA. The simply act of brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes can have a significant impact on cavity prevention as well as a myriad of oral diseases such as gingivitis. 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.
