Another year, another February! National Children’s Dental Health Month is one of our favorite times of the year, because we get to go into the community and talk to the local elementary schools. This year, we went to Westlawn Elementary, Woodview Elementary, and Kennedy Elementary and spoke to the 4K classes.
Our practice manager Margaret and our dental assistant Michelle spoke to the kids about keeping their teeth healthy and making good lifelong decisions. We played games too, with kids choosing between “happy tooth” and “sad tooth” foods and then dressing up like baby teeth to practice brushing and flossing. We spoke to 153 kids this year and gave out lots and lots of toothbrushes!
Thank you to Westlawn, Woodview, and Kennedy schools for giving us the opportunity to meet your students!
