Our House is inviting the dentist back

Our unit on dental health last year was so successful. The children learned all about how to care for their teeth and had fun doing it too. We are planning to have the dentist come for another visit to talk to the children about their teeth. It is so important to teach children about dental health at an early age so they will have good dental hygiene. More information is coming.
