Staff from the Henry and Stark County Health
Departments have been visiting area elementary and preschools to offer
instruction to students regarding the importance of good dental care.
RaeAnn Tucker-Marshall, Health Department Public Information Director,
has presented to students from preschool to sixth grade. She demonstrates
proper toothbrushing and flossing techniques; as well as, explaining how
nutrition affects teeth, and how to prevent tooth decay. Tucker-Marshall
also stresses the importance of regular checkups and displays a few items
used to clean and inspect teeth.
Youngsters are allowed to take part in a short question and answer
session regarding the importance of proper dental care for their teeth.
Also, everyone in the class receives a special toothbrush, and teachers
receive dental information packets containing suggestions for further
classroom activities.
