Dental Safari comes to Hall school

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

In addition, Dental Safari receives grant funding to supply free care to students who are uninsured and can't afford to pay anything.

It is a wonderful program that we offer our children here at school,” said Becky Webb, a registered nurse for District 80 schools.

While providing the care at Andy Hall this week, the dentists and school staff tried to make the experience as fun as possible for the kids.

In many cases, these children were seeing a dentist for the first time, Webb said.

Hauser said she hopes Dental Safari can help educate children and parents about the importance of oral hygiene.

Many people falsely believe that caring for baby teeth is not as important since kids lose those teeth anyway, Hauser said.

A lot of times, people don't realize that baby teeth hurt,” Hauser said. “The idea is to get people to be educated about their dental needs.”
