Cary Family Dental Provides Dental Health Presentations to Local Schools for Fourth Year

Preschool and elementary school students taught the importance of early tooth care and health

CARY, NC – March 31, 2010 – In conjunction with Children’s Dental Health Month, Cary Family Dental recently presented 16 dental health presentations to over 700 preschool, kindergarten, and first grade students in Cary, Raleigh, Morrisville, Apex, and Holly Springs. Crystal Koran, RDH; Melissa Crouse, RDH; and Melissa Dunn, RDH, BSDH from Cary Family Dental gave the dental health presentations to students at Brier Creek Elementary, Sterling Montessori, Salem Elementary, Holly Springs Elementary, Kingswood Elementary, and Kirk of Kildaire Children’s Center. This is the fourth consecutive year that the dental practice has provided these free presentations to the community.

Cary Family Dental offers these presentations in February to coincide with Children’s Dental Health Month, an annual event sponsored by the American Dental Association to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Crouse says that early education about the importance of proper tooth maintenance is important to ensuring lifelong optimal dental health.

“We enjoy being able to provide this program to the area children every year,” says Crouse. “It is very rewarding to be able to introduce them to proper oral hygiene and habits. We know that early education is key and establishing good habits at such an early age is very important. We look forward to doing these presentations again next year!”

Cary Family Dental provided 30-minute interactive presentations, which included puppets, a game teaching healthy foods, and information on healthy oral hygiene habits and brushing techniques. The hygienists also encouraged regular dental appointments. Each student was also given a gift bag which included dental supplies, a coloring book, crayons, stickers, and a dental informational brochure for parents.

Kristen Roberts is a Special Programs Teacher from Salem Elementary. She said that the manipulatives and video provided by Cary Family Dental really held her students’ attention. She said that the benefits of the presentation were two-fold.

“The children now have more knowledge of their teeth, and it’s always good for them to see health providers before being put in an office/clinic situation,” says Roberts. “I also liked the way [the presentation] was easily adapted to our population of children with special needs. I hope to see you again next year.”

Cary Family Dental offers free dental health presentations to preschools and elementary schools in Cary, Apex, Raleigh, Morrisville, and the surrounding areas on a first-come, first-serve basis. Any educator interested in booking a presentation at his or her school for next year can contact Cary Family Dental at (919) 460-6884.
