The Robert Toombs Christian Academy K-3 students are currently learning all about their teeth. On Friday, February 9, Abbigail Lynn and Lauren Rhoney, dental hygienist students at Southeastern Technical College, visited the K-3 class to teach them all about their teeth.
The girls taught the class the proper way to brush their teeth, how many times a day they should brush them and read a book to the students. They let them practice brushing using the big set of teeth the girls brought with them. Before leaving, Abbigail and Lauren gave the students goodie bags with toothbrushes, of course!
