Sponsored annually by the American Dental Hygienists Association (ADHA), National Dental Hygiene Month (NDHM) is a month-long observance of the importance of proper oral hygiene. Observed in October, with a specific theme chosen by ADHA, participating communities are given the chance to recognize the contributions of dental hygienists towards community outreach efforts. The 2007 topic is a continuation of the four-year theme A Healthy Smile Lasts a Lifetime. The focus for this year will be on Adolescent and Teenage Oral Health. Possible topics to be discussed include:
  • Smoking
  • Piercing
  • Breath mints
  • Deleterious effects of carbonated and sugared drinks
  • Nutrition
  • Mouth guards/sports
