The Kids Healthy Mouth Campaign (@brush2min2x) has designed November 1st, National Brush Day.
“After eating all that Halloween candy, it’s even more important for kids to maintain healthy tooth brushing habits,” the organization says. “Did you know that dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, affecting 16.5 million children in the United States? Oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million school hours and their parents to lose 25 million work hours annually.”

The organization is encouraging parents to take the pledge to make sure their children brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes. The Ad Council’s #2min2x campaign has been drawing national attention through a series of videos and creative ways to encourage children to brush.
