February is National Dental
Health Month. In recognition of this
I want to include a dental health tip shared with us by a local Dental
Hygienist. The focus for this health tip
is on how important a parent/guardian’s role is in the dental health of a
child, as tooth decay remains one of the
most common diseases of childhood.
Children should see a dentist when the first baby tooth
surfaces (between the ages of 6
months and 1 year). The first visit is
critical so parents can learn appropriate steps to assist in maintaining their
child’s oral health.
Children often need more supervision with their dental hygiene.
A good rule of thumb is if
children can completely dress themselves, including tying their shoes without
any assistance, then they can brush on their own. Flossing without supervision shouldn’t be
allowed until the age of 10, as flossing is a much more difficult task to
master than brushing.
Children should be brushing their teeth at least twice a day, ideally
before bed and after breakfast and brushing for two minutes each time.
When parents/guardians are more involved with their child’s dental
hygiene routine, attitudes and habits are formed at a very young age to
maintain a healthy oral care routine that lasts a lifetime. - Sharon Gilman,
The Health office is in need of pants, size 5 to 8 for both boys and
girls. Used clothing is fine. These clothes are used in case a student is
in need of a change during the day and may not have anything in their backpack. If you are cleaning out and have some you can
donate please contact Robin Wright.
