>At the Shoreline Family Support Center, on Saturday May 22nd, a crew of University of Washington School of Dentistry students and their professor showed up with toothbrushes and floss in hand to conduct free dental screenings and optional flouride treatments for children 6 months – 12 years old.
Everyone got a lesson in proper teeth brushing technique. Whether by watching a dental student demonstrate on a set of large fake teeth….
…or observing brushing their own teeth in front of a mirror.
And who can forget the importantance of flossing. A dinosaur puppet’s chomping teeth were the perfect way to practice.
