Dental Care Lesson at Timber Point

Kindergarten students at Timber Point Elementary were visited by two representatives of East Islip Dental Care on Feb. 1 for a memorable lesson in how to take good care of their teeth.

As part of National Children's Dental Health Month, hygienist Debbie Seegers, an Islip Terrace resident, and dental assistant Bianca Forgione came to Timber Point to explain all about brushing, flossing and maintaining dental health. With the visual aid of stuffed dog Puppy Pete, the kindergartners learn how to brush correctly. At the conclusion of the lesson, the students were given a goody bag filled with supplies for maintaining their smiles.
