If your kids aren’t happy going to the dentist, they haven’t been part of the celebration of Children’s Dental Health month at Port Washington Dental.
As in the past, Dr. Paul Eisen, Dr. Sultan Salem and Dr. Kristin Curro, along with other members of the staff, recently hosted children from local schools at their office on South Bayles Avenue. To help the children develop a positive view of dental visits, Dr. Curro discussed dental care, showed a video about a trip to the dentist and stressed the importance of oral health. In addition to receiving a goodie bag, each child made a “tooth fairy pouch.”
