Every February, we celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month. “Brought to the public by the ADA, the month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated professionals, health care providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers, and many others.” You can get more information from ADA.org.
Paris Dental Arts and Spencer & Kerby Comprehensive Dentistry teamed up to teach Kindergarten students at Aikin Elementary how to care for their teeth properly. They showed students the proper way to brush their teeth, foods to eat that are good for their teeth, and tools used during a dental exam. Each kindergarten student was given dental bags from Paris Dental Arts and Spencer & Kerby Comprehensive Dentistry.
“Dr. Smith, Dr. Kerby, and I all have a passion for helping kids and keeping smiles healthy,” expressed Paris Dental Arts Registered Dental Hygienist Mindy Hadley. “It was so much fun to work together and put on a presentation for Aikin today. Kindergartners are always up for fun and always guaranteed to make you smile. We were honored that Aikin allowed us to talk to the kids about healthy habits, healthy teeth, and dental visits. We all love working in the dental office, but it is a treat to educate kids within the community.”
