Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

On November 16th Maureen Favorito, RDH, who is a member of the TUSDM’s community Dental Hygiene team, had participated at the Mildred Ave Elementary School Health Fair. She is also a member of Smart Smiles, a school-based oral health program that seeks to help prevent dental problems among Boston’s children and to identify, treat, or refer for treatment any student who has existing oral health problems. She and her assistant had Jeopardy games and tooth brushes! Maureen shares more about her experience:

“My assistant and I helped out at the Mildred Ave Elementary School Health Fair. We had a Dental Table and played a Dental Jeopardy game with students in grades K-5. The game was a little advanced for the age group, so we asked our own age appropriate questions regarding Dental Health and nutrition. The teachers gave the students the toothbrushes at the end of the day. I think the children all learned some new dental and nutrition tips.”
