Our staff visits classes at local schools to educate children about good dental health and how to care for their teeth. Recently our Health Educator Specialist, Maria Walker, received a thank you card from a class she had visited. They sent her a handwritten thank you card.
On the inside the students wrote this.
Teeth are necessary for appearance, for proper speech and to properly chew. Untreated dental disease affects the quality of life.
Follow the ABC’s of Dental Health
Always eat right
Brush and floss your teeth everyday
Checkups need to be done regularly
Make your smile worthwhile! Taking care of your teeth is important. Brush your teeth three times a day, floss your teeth and avoid the use of tobacco products. Good dental care is important to your overall health. Make sure you and your family see a dentist at least once a year. A trip to the dentist can ensure that you receive the needed preventive care so that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
