Fruita dentists reach out to students

Fruita dentists Scott and Carol Lybrook joined in an observance of National Children’s Dental Health Month by sharing information about oral hygiene with second grade students at three local elementary schools.

“Dental health is important at any age, but it is critically important for our children to develop good dental health habits,” Carol Lybrook said. By one estimate, more than 51 million school hours are lost each year because of dental-related illnesses, she added.

Since its origin in 1941, National Children’s Dental Month has grown into a nationwide observance involving millions of people across the United States.

The Lybrooks interacted with a total of more than 300 students at Appleton, Rim Rock and Shelledy elementary schools during their presentations.
