January is Dental Health Month
by Shelly Coddington-Kayser - Monday, January 7, 2019, 12:27 PM

This month's health lesson is all about dental health.  We will be talking about brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist. We will also be reading a book called Sugarbug Doug by Dr. Ben Magleby. Ask your child some questions to see what they learned.  I encourage you to help your child brush his/her teeth twice a day and floss once a day, as well as visit a dentist regularly.  It is very important to develop good dental health habits at a young age.  Thanks!
