SC Dental Hygiene department will host Kindergarten Day on Thursday

About 400 area kindergartners are expected at Sheridan College on Thursday, Feb. 27 for the SC Dental Hygiene department’s annual Kindergarten Day.

The Dental Hygiene department’s students and faculty members coordinate each year in February to commemorate National Children’s Dental Health Month, and invite the young students out for a day of activities and interaction. The theme this year is “The Circus.”

June Biss, a dental hygiene instructor, said the goal of Kindergarten Day is to not only educate kindergartners about oral hygiene, but also to acquaint them with the dental office and equipment, making them more comfortable when they visit the dentist.

The kindergarteners will go home with a packet full of goodies, including a toothbrush, toothpaste, stickers and toys, all provided through donations from the community, local dentists, the Student American Dental Hygiene Association, Crest/Oral B and Colgate. Several local businesses also donate to the day.

For more information, contact the Dental Hygiene Department at 674-6446, ext. 3400.
