February 1, 2020 – February 29, 2020 all-day
MONTHLY EVENTS: Encouragement Month / National Children's Dental Health Month

ENCOURAGEMENT MONTH Is there a quote, poem, or phrase that has been particularly encouraging to you as a parent? Share it with our staff and we will be writing these on our windows throughout the cafe all month long. These winter months can be long and hard and we all need a little inspiration from time to time. Place your favorite in the black suggestion box in the cafe or give it to any staff member, please include your first name.

NATIONAL CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH If you have a baby or toddler, you may have questions about thumb sucking, your child’s first dental visit or how and when to clean your child’s teeth. If so, Cafe O’Play invites you to attend a free class that will be held on Saturday February 29th from 11:30am to 12:00pm. Dr. Julie Rudgers Croft, DDS, owner of Explorer Pediatric Dentistry (https://explorerdentistry.com/) in Hudson will be on hand to help parents learn about when children should have their first dental visit, when to expect changes from primary to permanent teeth, proper brushing and flossing techniques, thumbsucking, dental sealants, and choosing the right mouth protector for active children and adolescents. Parents will also learn about the importance of regular dental examinations. Dr. Croft will be providing free toothbrushes for each admission at Cafe O’Play throughout the month of February.
