Maureen Favorito, RDH is a public health dental hygienist with Smart Smiles. She participated in Mildered Ave Middle School Health Fair located in Mattapan, MA. She educated middle school students how to improve their oral health with various games, activities, and goodies!

“I was part of the Mattahunt Middle School Health Fair on Wednesday, April 26, 2017. All students in grades 6,7, and 8 attended the Health Fair. My assistant Vanessa helped me. We played Dental Jeopardy and Discussed Dental Careers. The 6th and 7th graders were very interested, but the 8th graders did not seem as interested. I think the students all learned some new dental information about, especially how often to brush and floss and which foods are not healthy for your teeth.”
