Kids learn How to Take Care of their Teeth at "give Kids a smile" Event More than 100 students from George Washington Elementary School and Diggs Johnson Middle School in Baltimore received free dental screenings to identify dental disease and received a fluoride sealant to help prevent cavities. The children were taught how to maintain a healthy mouth for life through the museum's signature MouthPower health education program, a hands-on exploration of how to brush and floss, how to eat healthy, and how to avoid the dangers of tobacco. This is coupled with an interactive traveling exhibit that is currently touring children's museums across the country.
The "Give the Kids a Smile" event in Baltimore is made possible by a partnership between the National Museum of Dentistry, the University of Maryland Dental School, and the Maryland State Dental Association. The project is organized by students from the University of Maryland Dental School. Transportation is made possible by the Maryland State Dental Association.
