Children are the future; it may be an overused phrase, but it is definitely rooted in fact. Ensuring that the next generation of leaders is properly equipped with the necessary tools is the job of the current leading generation. Leaders don’t only refer to those of government or businesses with large influence, but also the leaders of households and families. When the next generation is able to have a solid foundation from their family and community, they are poised to be the best leaders possible. It truly does take a village to raise a child.
A dental clinic has taken steps to form a partnership with certain schools to improve the dental health of children. When children have the best dental health early on, they are set on the path to better overall health and confidence for their lives. “In January, the clinic will begin a partnership with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools to offer dental services, including screenings for all students. The pilot program will be at Forest Park Elementary, though there are plans to expand it if it is well-received.
‘We’re trying to reach the population that doesn’t have a dentist,’ said Emily Smith, the clinic’s dental director.”
When you nurture something and give it the proper attention it needs and deserves, it has a greater chance of thriving. This can be said about anything in life…dental hygiene included. Make sure to visit your Ottawa dentist regularly to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.
