Elvis and His Adventures Teaching Students about Oral Health
During the month of February, we have been going to many elementary schools throughout the Poway Unified School District to teach Pre-K and Kindergarten classes how to keep their teeth healthy and clean.
We read a cute story called Little Pea , play a game about good/bad foods, and teach them how to brush with our friend, Elvis the dragon. It’s always a blast teaching the kids, they are always so intrigued and love to participate by brushing Elvis’s teeth after. Some kids get very enthusiastic and start ratting on their older siblings or parents which are always quite funny. We have heard many things from “My dad drinks allot of soda” or “My sister sneaks candy into her room at night”. We hope that with education these habits won’t only stay with the students, but may spread to the whole family.
It’s important to start good habits at a young age. Enamel is weaker in primary teeth allowing cavities to spread fairly quickly, so our overall goal is in prevention. Getting your child excited about brushing and flossing early in life or even getting them familiar with the dentist sets them up for success in the future.
We look forward to continue spreading the word about dental health and will be hosting some Storytime’s at the Poway Library throughout the year. Keep an eye out to join and don’t forget to stop by and say hello to Elvis!
If you have any questions about our office coming into your classroom, library or day care for a dental presentation, please don’t hesitate to call us at (858) 748-3090 or email at McGradyDental@Gmail.com
