The month of February was National Children’s Dental Health Month. We had visitors come and speak to the Kindergarten classes. Students learned about keeping their teeth clean all the time. The students learned to floss and see the dentist often. They also worked on trying to get the students to understand that sometimes you have to eat healthy to have white and shiny teeth.
Tooth decay is the most common problem for young children. The American Dental Association is trying to prevent that. Forty percent of children already have cavities and we don’t want kids at young ages getting cavities when they still have their baby teeth. The main reason we had people visit our school to talk about National Dental Health Month was to raise awareness for our Kindergarten classes.
