Embracing Futures at Rimer CLC

Rimer 3rd Graders Learn about Dental Health
Just in time for the Valentine's Day Candies, Rimer 3rd Graders enjoyed a Dental Health Presentation from Dental Hygienist Kelly Hershberger. As a representative of Embracing Futures, Ms. Hershberger discussed the importance of taking care of your teeth. She demonstrated the proper way to brush, basic oral health information and foods to avoid and why.
The students got a kick out of her plaque demonstration and the importance of flossing. A student was directed to stick his hand into a dish of chocolate pudding. Next Kelly wiped the outside of his hands and fingers with a cloth representing brushing the teeth. When the student spread his fingers apart, we could see all of the pudding that was missed. Kelly used yarn to remove the chocolate and demonstrate how floss removes the leftover food.
Lastly, she brought out a giant stuffed monkey that she used to demonstrate proper brushing techniques. All students received a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and a dental tablet to practice proper brushing. The students always enjoy the presentation by Embracing Futures!
