TeamNews Update

Andover Pediatric Dentistry (APD) is always waiting with great excitement for February because it represents the beginning of tons of Oral Health Presentations. February National Dental Health Month is meant to increase awareness about the important role of oral health and overall health in every children life.

APD had the opportunity to visit several preschools such as Smart Start, Little Sprouts, Child Development, Head Start.

The following is some of the information Smart Start Childcare Center:

“Practicing good oral hygiene is important for your overall health and is something we do here at SMART START.  February is  National Children's Dental Health Month.  We are strong advocates for instilling life skills and teaching proper self-care to our students.  Our oral hygiene units were a huge success. We encompassed a wide variety of learning and hand-on activities, as well as on-site field trips with Andover Pediatric Dentistry. Martha from Andover pediatric Dentistry visited SMART START  both last and this year for on-site field trips! “
