Dental Health Month Sponsors 2023

Join Us for Dental Health Month

Each February we promote healthy smiles by joining with our dental community to offer free dental screenings right inside the Museum! Kids can pretend to be the dentist in our Puget Sound Dental Office exhibit and meet special guests: Amazon of Olympia, Batman in Seattle, and Tinker Fairy (see the event calendar for dates and times). From sewing a toothy pillow to exploring maritime mouths, families can enjoy fun and engaging dental health activities all month long. Presenting Sponsor, Westside Dental.

Free screenings on Saturdays Feb. 4, 11, 18, & 25 from 2–4 p.m., and on First Friday Night Feb. 3 from 6–8 p.m. Museum admission is also free with your screening. Reservations required. Call (360) 956-0818 ext 0. Screening Sponsor, Small to Tall Pediatric Dentistry.
