Our team is hoping to change the way our community views dental health. Oral health is such an important piece to our overall health and wellness. It is a privilege to support children in discovering the excitement found in pursuing a healthier way of life. It is our goal to train kids from a young age in proper hygiene, giving them knowledge they need to sustain a healthy lifestyle. The results of this are as few cavities as possible, and behaviors to support healthy living.
What is it?
This is a fun way to teach kids about the many ways their bodies and dental disease are connected. In the learning lab, the kids will learn how to properly use many different dental hygiene items (brushes, pastes, flossers, fluorides, rinses, etc.). Our hope is that each visit will result in growing skilled, confident kids with a lifetime of optimal dental health.
