Dental Health Month

February 2018

Join us we celebrate our 4th Annual Dental Health Month! Area dentists will visit the museum to answer your questions about oral health, educators will have a variety of fun programs and NEW this year, free oral health screenings will be conducted by local Dental Community Centers. Every child who visits during February will go home with their own toothbrush thanks to our Toothbrush Sponsor, Great Outdoors Pediatric Dentistry!


These are the special activities we will be exploring at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire during the month of February! We’ll have a different Dental Health Month drop-in program every day—call ahead to see what's going on the day of your visit!
