Kids Care Dental and Orthodontics stopped by American Lakes on their Happy Smiles Tour to educate our first graders on ways to keep their teeth and gums healthy. Our students learned the importance of going to the dentist, brushing daily, best brushing/flossing techniques, and diet (good vs bad). They experienced hands on learning by brushing and flossing stuffed animals and were able to ask questions related to dental care. One student asked, “what about the tongue, do you need to brush your tongue?” The Kids Care Dental representatives answered, “yes, great question! It is very important to brush your tongue!” Flossy, the Kids Care Dental mascot even made a special appearance, too! Overall, our students had a great time and left extremely motivated to practice these techniques and maintain a healthy and happy smile! Thank you Kids Care Dental for visiting America Lakes and for giving this wonderful presentation to our first graders!
