A RESOLUTION DECLARING FEBRUARY 2021 AS CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH

MONTH

Whereas, our community recognizes that the success of Heber City depends on supporting every

individual without medical insurance so they may pursue their dreams and strengthen our city; and


Whereas, we recognize that through dental education and regular preventative dental care, tooth

decay is almost completely preventable, and children can remain healthy and contribute to the

success of their community, as their healthy smiles are the cornerstone of our town; and


Whereas, research shows that through supervised tooth brushing programs and preventative care

children can reduce dental-related illness, which causes kids in the U.S. to miss 51 million of school

hours each year and school absences, which start as early as first grade; and


Whereas, through a balanced diet, brushing and flossing after every meal, and regular dental checkups,

children and adults can avoid cavities and remain healthy; and


Whereas, in 2020 children who reside in Utah, will visit People’s Health Clinic and receive dental

exams and education at no cost; and


Whereas, Children’s Dental Health Month is an opportunity for Heber City to unite citizens of Utah

to raise public awareness about the importance of preventative dental care for all people; and


Therefore, the City Council of Heber City, Utah, hereby declares February 2021 as Heber City’s

Children’s Dental Health Month.
