To help celebrate National Children's Dental Health Month, representatives from the North Carolina-based clinic Cary Family Dental delivered free presentations to elementary schools across the state over the last few weeks to help education children on the importance of proper dental care.
Throughout February, registered dental hygienist Melissa Crouse and her colleagues provided interactive presentations to local kids in the Cary and Raleigh area. As part of the 30-minute show, the hygienists used games to teach children about the dental implications of eating unhealthy foods, poor brushing techniques and harmful oral hygiene habits.
Each of the 700 students taking part in the presentation received a gift bag which included dental supplies, a coloring book and a dental informational brochure to bring home to their parents.
"It is very rewarding to be able to introduce them to proper oral hygiene and habits," said Crouse. "We know that early education is key and establishing good habits at such an early age is very important."
Childhood tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease. Every year, more than 51 million school hours are lost because of dental-related illnesses.
