Dental Health Month

Every February

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!
