We were thrilled to have been recently granted a remarkable opportunity to conduct our interactive and informative oral hygiene workshop for four Grade 1 classes at Alcona Glen Elementary School. The session was filled with engaging activities, including an entertaining video, an artistic colouring activity, and hands-on instruction. Our primary goal was to educate the young students about the causes of cavities, particularly emphasizing the role of bacteria in plaque formation, while empowering them with practical tips to prevent cavities and maintain excellent oral health.
With the invaluable support of Colgate and Sinclair Dental, we were able to provide each child with a toothbrush and toothpaste to take home. These essential tools not only served as a tangible reminder of the lessons learned but also as a means to foster positive dental habits that can last a lifetime.
The children’s enthusiasm and curiosity throughout the workshop were contagious. They eagerly shared their own dental experiences and stories, reinforcing the importance of early oral health education. Their excitement peaked during the hands-on portion of the class, where they actively participated in learning proper brushing and flossing techniques. Witnessing their enthusiasm and genuine interest in adopting good oral care practices was truly heartwarming.
As a team, we left Alcona Glen Elementary School with a renewed sense of purpose and fulfillment. Engaging with the students and witnessing their receptiveness to our workshop reminded us of the significant impact we can make in our community. Our passion for volunteer work and dedication to promoting oral health were further reaffirmed by this enriching experience.
