Children enrolled in the Child Care Center on Vance-Granville Community College’s Main Campus recently enjoyed a visit from Suzanne Cheever, a dental hygienist from the office of Dr. Wilson Hoyle in Henderson. Cheever’s visit on Feb. 5 was planned in conjunction with a unit of study on Dental Health. February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Cheever demonstrated dental equipment for the children, giving them an idea of what to expect when they visit the dentist, along with tips on brushing techniques, flossing, caring for their teeth and healthy eating. The children also received new toothbrushes and illustrated booklets. Pictured, above, Cheever (seated, right) uses Alex the Alligator to demonstrate brushing.
