Our Community

Every February, Liberty Science Center partners with Delta Dental in celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month!

Usually we celebrate this month with a fun event at the Science Center. This year, the event has gone virtual!

Take a look at this post below from our friends at Delta Dental and learn more about how you can celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month online:

February is our favorite month. And, you know who else loves February? Our oral health superhero – Captain Supertooth!

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, which puts a spotlight on our favorite things: healthy smiles.

Typically, Captain Supertooth spends the month of February touring schools across New Jersey, teaching pre-k through first graders about the importance of taking care of their teeth, eating nutritious foods, and visiting the dentist.

Although this year’s tour has been postponed, the Captain wants to make sure kids can still hear his message – safely.

So, this Children’s Dental Health Month, we’ve put together a free Captain Supertooth educational toolkit. Our toolkit contains coloring pages, word searches and jumbles, and videos featuring the Captain. Whether you are an educator, parent, or caregiver, this toolkit can help you engage the youngsters in your life about keeping smiles healthy. And, the toolkit can be used whether students are in the classroom or learning remotely.

For more tips and smile-inducing messages from The Captain, be sure to watch the videos he put together for all the smile superheroes in training here.
