Parents of Toddler and Children's House children:

Are you interested in more information on dental and oral health for young child?  How to care for your young child's teeth, prevent dental issues and learn about early childhood dental resources in the community? 

We have the opportunity for dental professionals from MN Cavity Free Program at Community Dental Care to come and share with parents preventative oral health practices and connections to free dental services for young children. If this is of interest to you and a parent event you would attend, please contact Liesl.  We are looking at offering this in late January, early February when our elementary students are participating in the Community Dental Sealant event, but need to have parent interest to schedule.


From Our Parents
