In conjunction with our Hockey Cares Project, November 9 – 13, 2017, we have launched a Dental Cares Project to provide dental hygiene supplies and education in Attawapiskat. Support Lisa as she joins the team and provides important dental health education during this trip. Thank you Lisa Jamieson Mazzocato for a great job with the Dental Cares project this past weekend. It was a fun time with lots of kids receiving good education on dental health. The children loved Lisa and she left them with lots of gifts including the local health centre.
Oral health contributes to your overall general health at all stages of life. Good oral health positively impacts a child’s ability to learn, attend school and eat nutritious foods while aiding in proper growth and development. As a Registered Dental Hygienist, Lisa is in a unique position to provide education, guidance and motivation necessary to help students establish positive oral health habits. Through interactive displays and hands on learning, students learned proper brushing and flossing techniques as well as the benefits of good nutrition. It is extremely important to establish good oral health habits as early in life as possible.
