   Colgate Dental Van Visits Gibson



     The Colgate Dental Van visited Gibson Elementary on Thursday, March 6th.   Students in grades K – 2 were able to participate in an assembly where Margaret Hopper, a Colgate educational leader, shared with the students steps to taking care of their teeth.  In addition, she spoke with the students about making healthy choices in the foods they eat. Chopper, the dental dog, was also on hand to assist in the instruction of dental care.  Students who returned parental consent forms were then allowed to visit the dental van.  This visit allowed students to have a quick dental checkup with a local dentist and hygienist. Students were presented with toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other information on how to take care of their teeth. Dental report cards were issued to the students for parents to review.  Everyone had a great time and enjoyed learning how to become a “Tooth Defender"!
