Fourth graders learn about oral health at Shields, Columbia and Edwards Elementary Schools

Edwards ElementaryComplete Care Dental has been very busy reaching out into the community.

Since early April 2008, they have visited the fourth grade classes of Shields Elementary, Columbia Explorers Elementary, and Edwards Elementary Schools in the Brighton Park and Archer Heights neighborhoods of Chicago.   Through class presentations they have reached out to over 400 4th grade students!

They learned about:

  • How to brush and floss their teeth
  • The importance of a healthy diet and including foods from the four food groups
  • Why it is important to stay away from juice and pop and to drink water and low-fat milk instead
  • The importance of visiting the dentist twice a year

Columbia ExplorersEach student received a goody bag with a toothbrush, pencil and information to take home to their families.
