Good Dental Health

Maria Walker, our Health Educator Specialist

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.

Inside of handwritten card from students:  “Everyone enjoyed seeing the teeth and keeping them clean. Wow!!  Pop has a lot of sugar.  We all are going to try to eat healthy foods like carrots, tomatoes, apples, and corn.  Thank you for spending your time with us.  All your 1st grade friends at PV.

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.
