Local WellSpot receives visit from the well-ahead team
Well-Ahead Louisiana’s Oral Health Promotion and the WellSpot Designation program partnered together to educate those at an East Baton Rouge Early Childhood Development Center about oral health. The child care center Well-Ahead visited is a designated WellSpot and practices many benchmarks that help keep both the children and staff happy and healthy!
Accompanied by their stuffed animal brush buddy Max, the Well-Ahead Louisiana staff spent the morning with the pre-kindergarten children at the center learning about their teeth, how to brush them, and why it is important to have good oral health! Each child and childcare provider took home an oral health treat bag that included a toothbrush, toothpaste, oral health sticker, and activity sheet. Following the visit, the child care is now at a level 3 designation! What a great way to spread healthy smiles to the children in Louisiana!
