Visiting preschools and teaching children about their teeth has kept us busy every February as we celebrate National Dental Health Month. I’ve made so many wonderful friends over the years and have been touched by the warm welcomes my team and I always receive.
Blessed to grow up in a fulfilling teaching environment myself, I have great admiration and respect for all teachers. My wonderful mother taught art and music to children of all ages for over 35 years. She has always been an inspiration to me in her love and dedication. So, when we launched Smiles Pediatric Dentistry back in 2008, I quickly became aquatinted with most all the preschools and elementary schools in the area.
It’s heartwarming to see how excited the little ones get about tooth talks! I personally created the posters for the presentation using art supplies and had a lot of fun doing so. Here is a recording of what I typically talk about for any of our beloved teachers to use throughout the school year.
