Back to School, Giving Back

It’s that time of year again, back to school.  As children return to school they also get back into a daily routine.  Making oral hygiene is a big part of this daily routine.  This month our hygienist, Sue, gave an oral hygiene presentation at Plantation Park Elementary school.

The lesson included: the roles of the dental team (hygienist, dentist, assistant), the importance of personal protection equipment (PPE): gown, mask, protective eye wear, and gloves, the anatomy of the mouth and the importance of fluoride and good daily oral hygiene to protect teeth, proper brushing, flossing, and mouth rinse techniques, as well as a lesson on proper nutrition.  Each child received a Colgate Wave toothbrush.
