Whitesburg KY

Kids’ dental program set

Delta Dental of Kentucky will host a free program teaching children about maintaining healthy mouths at 10:30 a.m., July 8, at the Harry M. Cau- dill Memorial Library in Whitesburg, and at 4 p.m. at the Blackey Public Library.

Dental kits — complete with toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and a copy of Dr. Seuss’s “The Tooth Book” — will be given to children who attend the program.

Delta Dental’s mascot, Marshall Molar, and an oral health expert will visit with the children and provide information. The children will learn how to brush and floss their teeth properly, which foods are healthy and unhealthy for their teeth, what happens if teeth are not properly cared for, and how often a dental visit should be made.
