Preschool Tours and Classroom Visits
One of the most important aspects of pediatric dentistry is prevention. Although current technology has produced filling materials that are extremely strong and esthetic, nothing is quite as good as your natural teeth. Dr. Seman and Dr. Knight feel that it is their duty to teach as many children as possible about their teeth and how to keep them healthy. They have developed entertaining and interactive programs that make learning about dental health fun. Besides learning about their teeth, we have found that interacting with the doctors themselves can reduce any anxiety that a child might have about visiting a dental office, and even get them excited about it.
The most effective and fun educational program that we offer is one in which your group visits the office. Children can see how dental x-rays are made, clean models of teeth with our tools, and explore different areas of the office with their friends, teachers, and parents. In an age appropriate manner, we talk about brushing, flossing and keeping a healthy diet.
We also offer off-site visits to schools and day cares. In addition, we are currently developing a program for parent groups. Through these programs, we have educated thousands of children, and the number is growing every year.
If you are interested in having your child’s group take part in a custom designed program, please call us at the office. Our special event coordinator would be happy to discuss the details and arrange a visit.
