MOUNT VERNON — In celebration of Children’s Dental Health Month, the staff of Howe Family Dentistry made a “house call” to an area school.

On Feb. 18, Jessica Summers and Sheri Thaxton, Registered Dental Hygienists at Howe Family Dentistry, along with Dr. and Mrs. Howe visited the third-graders at St. Vincent de Paul School. The students were shown how to take care of their teeth and some fun tips showing the right way to floss and brush, and to provide dental hygiene education.

“We believe strongly in the importance of starting proper dental care as early as possible,” Dr. Howe said. “By visiting kids in school, we can not only teach them about proper dental hygiene, but also show them some fun and easy ways to do it. Meeting the children in a group setting where they are comfortable also lets them see that dentists aren’t scary.”

Dr. Howe has been caring for children’s teeth for more than 24 years. In March, Dr. Howe will be traveling to Haiti on his fifth volunteer/mission trip to provide dental care to children and families who otherwise would have none.
