Kickoff of Children’s Dental Health Month!
The Tidewater Dental Assistants Society kicked off Children Dental Health Month on Friday, February 2, 2018, at Hermitage Elementary School. Pre-k to 5th grade were shown videos, instructed on brushing and flossing, taught healthy food choices and how your teeth affect the health of your body. Every student was given a goodie bag with toothbrush, toothpaste, and stickers to take home. Posters were given out to hang in nurses office, lunchroom, gym, and classrooms.
Carol A. Walsh, CDA, CDPMA and Sheila Krakower, CDA-Emeritus from TDAS want to give thanks to Lynn Lee, RN, (securing the gym and time schedule) and gym teachers Karen Ford, Tiara Shuler, Tracy Bellamy, Jessica Kavareth and Stacy Campbell for your outstanding help to make this a success. Also, all classroom teachers who assisted with the program and made time in their class schedule to bring the children to the gym.
