BRUSH 'EM, FLOSS 'EM, AND VISIT YOUR LOCAL ORTHODONTIST!

1st Grade Adventure

In February, during National Children's Dental Health Month, staff members from Jarrell Orthodontics paid a visit to the 1st grade students at Eastern Elementary School to discuss the importance of brushing, flossing, and good oral hygiene. Following the lesson on oral hygiene, the 1st grade students learned about orthodontics and got an up close and personal look at some orthodontic models. Once the formal presentation was over, each 1st grade student got to choose a toy from the toy chest to take home along with a "tooth" themed pencil, eraser, sticker, and tooth keeper necklace. After the time at Eastern Elementary, it was off to see the 1st graders at Western Primary School for the same lesson!

3rd Grade Field Trip

During the 2009 school year, 3rd grade students from Western Primary took a field trip to Jarrell Orthodontics to get a firsthand look at the orthodontic process. The students were greeted by Dr. Kevin Jarrell who began the morning with an introduction to orthodontics after which they made a mold of their thumb which gave them an idea of the way the molds for their teeth would be made. After learning about the various x-rays that would be taken of a new patient's teeth, the students stopped at the clinic area for a refresher course on brushing and flossing. Then, it was back to the reception area where they received their goodie bags which contained a "tooth" themed pencil, eraser, single use prepasted toothbrush, and the mold of their thumb.
