One of our guiding principles here at Avalon Dental is to "Prevent Disease Through Education." My team and I take this very seriously because we truly believe most dental problems can be prevented by good home care at an early age.
Recently, we had the opportunity to visit some of the younger members of our community here in Sugar Land at Austin Parkway Elementary.
Our Hygienist, Nguyet gave careful instruction to the kindergartners, first and second graders on how to correctly brush and floss their teeth, with the help of our Assistants Jenny and Michelle. The kids at Austin Parkway Elementary learned the importance of good nutrition and home care in maintaining a happy, healthy smile.
Our thanks go to Principal, Donna Whisonant and Kindergarten teacher, Joelyn Zamarron for their kind invitation and warm welcome.
If you are interested in having us over at your school or workplace for either dental education or some useful Q & A, please feel free to call us at 281-240-5559. Here at Avalon Dental Group, we strive to keep our community's smile happy and healthy!
Dental Topics: Prevention Through Education
The field of dentistry has benefitted greatly from the advancements in materials and technologies to help promote good oral health. Yet as a dentist myself, I've seen that my profession has embraced these new technologies at the risk of spending less time promoting "prevention through education." The truth is the healthiest mouths are not the mouths of the wealthiest people, but rather the mouths of educated people. This blog is my effort to educate the public and promote good oral health.
