As part of Healthy Habits Week, Concord SouthSide and Oxbow KidsCare sites had the pleasure of hosting Holli Becker, a hygienist from Dr. Snyder’s office. Holli visited the kids to shed light on the topic of dental health and the importance of establishing good oral hygiene habits at an early age.
The highlight of Holli’s session was educating the kids about “sugar bugs” – the harmful bacteria that can wreak havoc on our teeth if not properly addressed. By teaching the children how to brush their teeth correctly and emphasizing the significance of regular flossing, Holli aimed to instill the importance of oral hygiene while making it fun and engaging.
In addition to the educational aspect, the kids were in for a happy surprise. Each one of them received goody bags filled with new toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental floss. These goody bags not only serve as a token of appreciation from Dr. Snyder’s office, but they also act as a reminder to the kids about the daily routine of taking care of their teeth.
Promoting healthy habits early on in life cultivates the foundation for a lifetime of wellbeing. By incorporating dental health into the conversation during Healthy Habits Week, we ensure that children understand the value of maintaining good oral hygiene and are motivated to continue these practices well into adulthood.
Holli Becker’s visit to Concord SouthSide and Oxbow KidsCare sites was truly invaluable. The kids not only learned about “sugar bugs” but also gained knowledge about proper brushing techniques and the significance of flossing. The goody bags they received will undoubtedly serve as a reminder to keep up with their dental care routine on a daily basis.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to Holli Becker and Dr. Snyder’s office for their dedication to promoting oral hygiene among children. Their efforts will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on the kids, influencing a healthier future for all involved.
Remember, taking care of our teeth is not just a routine chore – it’s an investment in our overall health. Let Healthy Habits Week be a driving force in making dental hygiene a priority for everyone, young and old alike!
