Hello Families!
I wanted to share some great information with you. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. This month I hope to have a contest between the classes for a slogan for the Tooth Tutor program at Stowe Elementary. The winning classes (K-2 & 3-5) will get a great surprise from me and their slogans will be posted on a bulletin board in the school.  I am hoping to make the dental world more fun for kids!
I would also like to share some information on sealants with you. Once the first permanent molars begin to erupt, getting sealants is the most helpful thing you can do to protect them (besides brushing and flossing).  Here are 2 links to VERY short videos that explain what they are and why they're helpful.

Thank you for your time! If I can help with any dental needs, please let me know!
Kim (the Tooth Tutor)
