Protecting Perfect Smiles

Babylon Elementary School students learned about the importance of daily brushing and proper techniques through a series of activities hosted in celebration of Dental Health Month.

All grade levels attended a presentation with dentist Dr. Anad, whose visit was provided through the Kid Island Dental Presentation. She reinforced the importance of proper brushing, spoke about tooth health and presented each student with a toothbrush.

As part of their curriculum, kindergarten students discussed the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods and completed interactive writing projects to share facts. They were also given a picture of a giant toothbrush to color at home after brushing twice a day.
