N-CCS Celebrates National Children’s Dental Health Month!

dental 2 dental 1In the month of February, students across the district have celebrated National Children’s Dental Health Month in fun and exciting ways! This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others. This year’s annual campaign slogan is “Defeat Monster Mouth”! The generous staff at Smile Starters Youth Dentistry in Conover, NC visited North Newton to teach students all about dental hygiene and demonstrate the correct way to brush their teeth. They even brought “goody bags” to all of the students at North Newton!  North Newton’s own school nurse, Jennifer Tuttle, got into character to help celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month, as well. She visited classrooms to help educate students about proper ways to take care of their teeth, gums, and mouth. Nurse Jennifer certainly brought smiles to the faces of the students she worked with!
