ORAL HEALTH CARE!

Parents of K-4th graders- ask your child what they learned from the NYU dental team! K-4th (1st grades Jan 11) were visited this week by the NYU dental & nutrition program, lead by an NYU Pediatric Dental Professor.  The dental students and nutritionist lead the children in a discussion about oral hygiene: why and how we brush our teeth, how many teeth we have, which foods promote good oral health… they brought puppets and giant toothbrushes to demonstrate oral care.   Then the dental students did quick visual screens of the children as they had them roar like a lion, and sent a report and new toothbrush home with your child.  Please look for these in your child’s folders.
