As February is National Children's Dental Health Month, Hawai'i Dental Association was asked by several local elementary schools for presentations on Oral Health...and our Hō’ola Waimea Dental Team volunteered to present to the 2nd grade classes at Ele'ele School!!
Dr. Lauren and her Tooth Fairies presented to the keiki on oral health with live demonstrations of brushing and flossing - of course, using eager volunteers from the audience! The Tooth Fairies were interspersed amongst the children with mouth models, teaching them proper brushing/flossing and why we place sealants on molars. The children were captivated and had so much fun! The sessions culminated with fun activity sheets to bring home, along with the famed goodie bag of toothbrushes and pastes.
Dr. Lauren and her Fairies then flew west to Ke Kula Ni'ihau Charter School where they gave a similar presentation and demonstrated proper brushing/flossing using mouth models with student participation. Each presentation was a bit differently adapted, as they taught Kindergarteners to 12th graders. Each student was given an oral screening in another room with a goodie bag reward at the end. Those who needed immediate attention were documented and followed up later. It was a great day to be out serving the community and they all enjoyed the privilege!
