Book a Dental School Visit to Educate Kids About Oral Hygiene
Smile is the most beautiful thing you can wear, a phrase that you all have heard. It is vital to maintain your smile throughout your life, and it can be done by maintaining good oral hygiene and dental care. Your smile can fade away with dental problems. Oral health is crucial to maintain the overall well-being of a child, so forgetting about teeth and gums may come at a cost. Young minds are shaped at an early age, it is imperative to establish oral hygiene habits in your kids. Kids with early habits tend to maintain their good brushing and flossing habits resulting in lesser dental problems. To teach kids this lesson at a young age, you can book a dental school visit to inculcate good knowledge.
Every year, National Children’s Dental Health Month is celebrated in February for this very purpose. The office of Growing Smiles pediatric dentistry celebrates the month by visiting various schools and teaching kids the importance of good flossing and brushing habits. The interaction between the kids and experts is targeted to clear the questions that children have about their teeth and dental hygiene. With the hope that the kids will take knowledge on how to get cavity-free and stay that way for the rest of their life, the visits are conducted.
The experts of Growing Smiles love to give children a visit and all they do is engaging with them in discussions and teaching about proper nutrition and the right techniques to brush and floss to stay away from cavity monsters. And the experts also let the children know what to expect while visiting a dentist for the first time.
This dental education program is aimed at student participation and is offered in the following two ways:
- The experts can take a visit to your daycare or school by bringing some items with them for a little “show and tell” program. This can be done if you book a dental school visit.
- The next way is to take a field trip to the dental office. This way children can learn about all the equipment they see and learn. Also, they can take pictures on a dental chair.
If your school wants to schedule a visit to ensure a cavity-free life for students, you can find the information on their website.
