Mara Sand, community dental hygienist with Interior Health, will be visiting Kaslo Strong Start on Monday, June 5th. This is an opportunity to have a private, mini dental consultation for your children.
Families will have a short appointment, one at a time, in our little 'storytelling room'. If they are willing, Mara will have a look in children's mouths and let you know about any concerns.This is also a great time to ask any questions you may have (e.g. questions about fluoride, tips on brushing a squirmy toddler's teeth, info about the low-cost dental clinic in Nelson, etc). Mara may also offer a fluoride varnish treatment if needed and wanted by the parents.
No need to sign up in advance. Just come to the Family Centre on that Monday June 5th during regular Strong Start Parent and Child Time (8:45 am to 11:45 am) and you will get a turn with the dental hygienist.
