Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge

CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health is committed to helping kids learn the healthy habits that lead to healthy smiles. In 2016, we launched the first ever Healthy Habits, Healthy Smiles! Brush-Twice-A-Day challenge, a county-wide effort to end children’s tooth decay. The challenge inspires 10 weeks of tooth-brushing that is sure to be habit-forming for elementary school children throughout the Lancaster Community.

Thanks to community partners at several preschools, elementary schools and the Library System of Lancaster County, the 2017 Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge reached 8,000 children!

Ready, Set, Brush! Fall 2018

CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health and the Library System of Lancaster County are joining forces this fall to launch the 3rd Annual Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge!
