It’s National Brush Day!

The day after Halloween is now National Brush Day!

After eating all that Halloween candy, it’s even more important for kids to maintain healthy tooth brushing habits.

Did you know that dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, affecting 16.5 million children in the United States? Oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million school hours and their parents to lose 25 million work hours annually.

Making sure kids brush their teeth for just 2 minutes, twice a day can make all the difference.

To help get your kids excited about brushing, and to educate yourself about the importance of children’s oral health, help us celebrate the first ever National Brush Day! Pledge to make sure your kids brush for 2 minutes, twice a day, every day!

Show your support by helping us spread the word and educate parents and kids about the importance of brushing! Here’s how:

1.      At the top of this page support via Twitter, Facebook, or both, and be sure to tell your friends and followers to do the same

2.      Tell your friends new things you learned about the importance of oral health and use the #NatlBrushDay and #2min2x hashtags.

3.      Visit 2min2x.org to get fun 2-minute videos to entertain your kids while they brush

4.      Text “BRUSH” to 30364 to receive children’s oral health tips on your cell phones via SMS messages

You can help make a difference in your child’s health by taking the pledge to brush with them on National Brush Day and every day. Spread the word, and brush!

    We have exceeded our (2nd) goal of 250 signups! Because of your efforts, more than 300K people will see the #2min2x message across Twitter and Facebook on the first-ever National Brush Day™. Thank you for helping us create this wave of support by spreading the word to your networks about the importance of children’s oral health. Together, we will encourage more parents to make sure their kids brush 2 minutes, twice a day to help prevent severe tooth pain.
