Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge

The Healthy Habits, Healthy Smiles! Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge is a short-term initiative with a long-term gain for children’s health. In 2016, we launched our Brush-Twice-A-Day challenge, a county-wide effort to end children’s tooth decay. In its first year, the challenge reached 13,000 children to inspire 10 weeks of tooth-brushing that is positively habit-forming. Ready to inspire a little healthy competition in your home and school? Call our Education Department at 717.397.7625 to bring Healthy Habits, Healthy Smiles! to your children today.
