The kids from a local daycare came into the Summerlea Dental Office one morning to experience the dental office and some of the important factors that contribute to good oral hygiene. We began by putting them in groups with leaders and travel around the office to the five different stations.

The stations we had set up were Oral Hygiene, Nutrition, Pit and Fissure, First Dental Visit, and check-up..

At the oral hygiene station we taught the kids the various brushing and flossing techniques for each age group present and the importance of making this a daily habit.

The nutrition station we discussed with the kids the difference between healthy and unhealthy snacking foods and ended of the station with a interactive game that involved each student to use their new knowledge in identifying the different snacks.

  • Nutrition Station – One of the five stations that taught the kids healthy/unhealthy snacks that contribute to their oral health.

At the pit and fissure station the kids were taught about the preventative procedure that is sealants. They got to see how the procedure goes and got to see the advantages of having a sealant placed.

Pit & Fissure Station- Teaching kids on the procedure that aids in prevention of cavities in the grooves of the back teeth

First Dental Visit was an important station it really allowed them to be comfortable with the tools we use and took any anxiety out of their future dental visits.
