National Brush Day
November 1st is National Brush Day! National Brush Day was initiated in 2013 by the Ad Council and the Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives as part of the Children’s Oral Health Campaign.
The holiday was designed to reach parents on the day after Halloween to reinforce the importance of children’s oral health and promote good tooth-brushing habits. On National Brush Day (and every day), parents are encouraged to make sure their kids brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
Leading up to November 1st, show your support for #NatlBrushDay on social media.
ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN
The mouth is the gateway to a person's overall health, and an unhealthy mouth can be associated with obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Despite high rates of dental decay in children, research shows that many parents lack information about oral health. Furthermore, according to an Ad Council survey, 75 percent of parents report that their child sometimes or frequently forgets to brush their teeth.
This campaign aims to improve children's oral health by educating parents about the importance of a healthy mouth and motivating them to modify their children's behaviors through simple, low-cost, preventative strategies. The PSAs communicate the importance of brushing for two minutes, twice a day to prevent tooth pain later. Parents are directed to 2min2x.org, where they can find fun two minute videos that kids can watch while brushing.
