To help raise awareness about the importance of pediatric oral health, cbg|CONFIDENT supports the American Dental Association’s 12th annual Give Kids A Smile Day February 7, 2014 by releasing a list of their top ten favorite books that help kids learn about how to care for their teeth.

Give Kids A Smile is a nationwide program first held by the American Dental Association (ADA) in 2003 to provide care and raise awareness of the importance of access to dental care for low-income children.

"cbg is committed to helping individuals understand what pediatric dental coverage is included in Affordable Care Act and how to obtain the best dental plan for their families," says cbg’s spokesperson, Muriel Otto. "Unfortunately we’re finding that not all children have the care they need, but Give Kids a Smile Day offers screenings, treatments and education to more than 450,000 under-served children."

To help children learn good dental care habits, cbg has chosen their ten favorite children’s books which introduce healthy dental routines and stress-free dentist’s visits.

  •     "The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist" by Stan Berenstain.
  •     "The Tooth Book: A Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums" by Edward Miller.

The ADA recommends a "well baby" dental examine for children within six months of the eruption of the first tooth and no later than the first birthday. Besides checking for tooth decay and other problems, the dentists will demonstrate to parents how to clean the child's teeth properly and how to evaluate any adverse habits such as thumbsucking.
