Every February the Children's Museum of NH partners with area dentists to bring an entire month of oral health educational programming. Throughout the month dentists and special guests visit to answer your questions about oral health, to offer special programming, or just to help take some of the mystery out of what a visit to the dentist's office means! Museum educators also offer a variety of daily drop-in programs. All Dental Health Month programming is free with museum admission.
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!
Do owls have teeth? How do they eat their food? Find out and also get a close look at the teeth of some of the rodents who became the owl’s lunch!
Enjoy storytime with museum staff all about teeth!
We’ll take a close look at our goblin shark and beaver skull. We’ll try to figure out how they’re different and how their teeth help them eat!
A favorite experiment at the museum, what ingredients can we mix together to make a fun, bubbly, foamy and exciting toothpaste mess!?
Enjoy watching this bubbly, foamy, messy experiment demo and learn about the plaque attack that could happen in your mouth—and the importance of good tooth brushing!
