In the month of June, KOHC is celebrating National Oral Health Month and the importance of caring for your oral health as part of your overall health. KOHC often promotes easy ways to care for your oral hygiene – an important part of your daily routine – but we know that oral health goes beyond just brushing and flossing your teeth each day. Oral health includes taking care of your mouth by getting regular check-ups and screenings, making healthy food and drink choices, and understanding the connections between your oral health and overall health.
As we celebrate National Oral Health Month, KOHC will be focusing on a different oral health topic each week. Be sure to check back each week for new resources and information!
- June 7-11: The systemic connection between oral health and overall health
- June 14-18: The importance of healthy food and drink choices and new federal investments to support oral health
- June 21-25: Tips for caring for your oral health at every stage of life
- June 28-July 2: Recap of the month and next steps
KOHC encourages you to participate in this annual celebration with your dentist, dental hygienist, children, friends, and members of your community to promote good oral health and overall health.
