The Bresee Foundation is an after school youth program for low-income children and families. We provided OHI to around 120 middle school students. In order to give the kids a hands-on experience, we set up different stations which included: dental hygiene and brushing tips, nutrition, arts and crafts to build a mouth model, and introduction to alginate impressions. The foundation was very excited at the prospect of having us come since they haven't had OHI in years and they hope for us to come back next year!
