Staff from the Henry and Stark County Health

Departments have been visiting area elementary and preschools to offer

instruction to students regarding the importance of good dental care.

RaeAnn Tucker-Marshall, Health Department Public Information Director,

has presented to students from preschool to sixth grade. She demonstrates

proper toothbrushing and flossing techniques; as well as, explaining how

nutrition affects teeth, and how to prevent tooth decay. Tucker-Marshall

also stresses the importance of regular checkups and displays a few items

used to clean and inspect teeth.

Youngsters are allowed to take part in a short question and answer

session regarding the importance of proper dental care for their teeth.

Also, everyone in the class receives a special toothbrush, and teachers

receive dental information packets containing suggestions for further

classroom activities.

This dental education program is just one of a number of health

education programs available to area schools through the Health Department.
