Sriram says "AHHH" while having his teeth counted in our transformed art room to dental office. Below, Ernandie proudly displays her new tooth brush that she promises to use twice daily!
On October 17th, many of our students were seen by Carol Gilmore, RDH. Carol and her partner Elizabeth Chouinard, RDH are public health dental hygienists who offer this community preventative dental program to our students in Stoughton. The students receive an oral health screening, oral hygiene instruction and may receive fluoride treatment, dental cleanings and dental sealants. Ms. Gilmore uses a “tell-do-show” technique to gain the cooperation and confidence of the students. She explains what she will be doing and uses a model to demonstrate the instruments. Information about the student’s dental visit is sent home to parents. Students seen in the fall will be offered a follow up visit in the spring.
Mrs. Mulvey will keep the community connected to various news and events through blog postings.
