 Students at Westwood Elementary are learning the importance of healthy teeth.  Registered Dental Hygienist, Joy Rivers, a Health Promotion Specialist through the School Based Dental Program, has been discussing brushing and flossing for healthy teeth and gums with our students.  The students even had the opportunity to have their teeth professionally cleaned by Ms. Rivers.  Remember to brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and don’t forget to floss to help fight cavities and to keep your smile bright every day.
