Local Community Dental Outreach

Dr. Naved Fatmi and Sue Correia, CRDH, volunteered their services to teach students, their parents, and the staff of the Assalam Center in Boca Raton.

They discussed the importance of good oral health and nutrition habits, focusing on the sugar content of sodas, sports drink, energy drinks, and juices. Students were instructed on proper brushing and flossing techniques and good oral health habits, followed by a question and answer session.

Dr. Fatmi conducted dental screenings, administered preventive fluoride varnish, and provided oral hygiene kits to all the participants.

Everyone had a great time and learn a lot!

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.
