East School Guest Gets Students Excited for Dental Health

East School students were enthusiastic about dental hygiene, thanks to a visit from Dr. Deepa Jayam of ARC Advanced Dentistry in Long Beach. The guest dentist led a child-friendly presentation that covered all aspects of oral health and made students excited about taking good care of their teeth.

Dr. Jayam explained that brushing teeth twice a day and flossing can help prevent cavities. She also advised students to choose healthy foods and keep sugar intake to a minimum. “Your teeth were meant to last throughout your entire life, so make wise choices,” she said.

The students learned about the importance of visiting the dentist regularly and the steps that are taken during a standard cleaning. Proper dental hygiene plays a critical role in preventing plaque, cavities, gum disease and infection. Dr. Jayam shared a video and provided each student with a gift box of dental care items.

Health education is a significant part of the district’s curriculum. Students of all ages are taught about the value of healthy lifestyles and choices. Dental hygiene is just one of the many areas focused on throughout the school year.
