Children’s Dental Hygiene Workshop
(30-60 mins. Session)
LaTonya strives to begin teaching children early on about proactive oral care and the negative outcomes from rising dental issues which can have a major impact on the health and school and extracurricular activities.
With exciting and interactive group activities, LaTonya would love to share her professional knowledge on implementing and practicing dental hygiene care while inspiring students to maintain a healthy smile. As a friendly reminder, October is National Dental Hygiene Month and February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. The month of August and February celebrates National Tooth Fairy Day. Although LaTonya is always willing to be a representation of those national recognitions, her goal is to spread joy for dental health 365 days a year.
