Dental Associates in Wisconsin
Playing the role of dentist: Crystal Steinbrecher, a dental assistant with Dental Associates in Wisconsin, helps first-graders at Meadowbrook Elementary School in Howard, Wis., learn how to brush. As part of Children’s Dental Health Month in February, dental assistants from Dental Associates’ clinics in Wisconsin visited daycare centers, YMCAs, preschools and elementary schools throughout the state to teach 11,600 children the importance of dental health and show them how to properly take care of their teeth. As part of the visits, each child received a dental kit that included a new toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and dental care information.
