kindergarten classes at Jackson Elementary to share the importance of
proper dental hygiene.
Students learned how
"sugar bugs" can make cavities and how important it is to brush every
day. Cooper showed x-rays of healthy and unhealthy teeth and taught the
youngsters how to brush each section of their teeth thoroughly. All of
the tools necessary to motivate young brushers were sent home with them
including red tablets that show where the plaque is, a mouth mirror, a
SpongeBob toothbrush and their very own toothpaste.
also spoke about the importance of protecting teeth, eating healthy and
getting plenty of rest. All of the students raised their hands when
asked if they rode a bike or scooter or played sports.
