February is Children's Dental Health month! Kindergarten "Story Time Comes Alive" got a visit from Dr. CC Massey on Friday. They learned about all different kinds of teeth and how to care for their own teeth. 

The kindergarten class had the pleasure of having Dr. Massey come and speak with them during Story Time Comes Alive. Dr. Massey read them a fun book "What if you had Animal Teeth?" and taught them how to brush their teeth. The students enjoyed practicing brushing teeth on a stuffed dragon they named Spots. Thank you Dr. Massey!
