       The children were able to see items worn by dental hygienists and dentists, such as the uniform, mask, and gloves. They learned how to take care of their teeth and why a good diet with lots of low-sugar foods is important. The students identified low- and high-sugar foods. At the end of the presentation, the students were able to brush and floss their stuffed animal buddy’s teeth.
