Dental Assisting students participate in Children's Dental Health Day

More than 200 kids received much-needed dental health care last month at Children's Dental Health Day at the South Hill Mall.

Students in the Dental Assisting class helped dentists provide free dental screenings, dental treatment and fluoride varnishes. The students also spoke to kids about the importance of oral hygiene, and painted children's faces. One good sport even wore a tooth costume, said instructor Patty Reno.

"I am really glad I was a part of Children's Dental Health Day and had an opportunity to collaborate with others to educate the kids about oral hygiene," said student Kayla Hansen. "The kids were so excited and interested to learn about their teeth, that no child looked scared to have the dentists and assistants look in their mouths."

The Pierce County Dental Association, Pierce College Dental Hygiene Program and many other organizations helped coordinate this annual event.
